        As I was told, the list was open so they don't restrict email
addresses. They just have a fabulous spam catching system which only
admits spam on rare occasions it seems {gotta get a hold of their
spamassassin file :D).
        Unfortunately, this is where having an uninstall and install
script would be more than handy on FreeBSD.. if someone could conjure up
a script like that, that would be safe to use-even remotely-then maybe
this wouldn't be so much of an issue.
