I just received this pearl:

Just receiving this was enough to raise my blood pressure because I go
to lengths every time I subscribe to a mailman list to disable such
reminders, and now I realized I couldn't do anything about it this time
because sourceforge runs the list and there is no options page.

But this wasn't all.  After I pasted the link to my browser and clicked
the submit button, I got an error message about a missing captcha.  Sure
enough, when I inspected the list of redirections in the Request Policy
popup, Shmoogle was there.

Please, let us move the list.  This is a line in the browserisation of
everything which I am not willing to cross; so, if the list remains on
sourceforge I have to leave.
