I'd advise that you please check your facts in the future.  You have
it backwards:

       -s     Subscription moderation.  dir/modsub is created.   dir/text/mod-
              help is adjusted.  dir/text/sub-confirm is adjusted.

       -S     dir/modsub is removed.

members@ clearly has 's' set (see config file).  As does this list.

I don't know how else to make it clear: "anyone can subscribe to the
list without approval".  That is not the case right now.

I am saying that for closed lists where people can post without being
subscribed and that they can't subscribe without explicit approval, it
is a very short-sighted policy to have Reply-To set.  -- justin
