Hi All, I just got notification from the mailman server that 180+ members have un-subscribed in just one minute. Clearly this is the server deciding to do stuff all by itself. We've seen this suspect behaviour before and in the past I've logged a support call to Dreamhost to reinstate. In the past Dreamhost have claimed that this is just mailman cleaning out no longer valid addresses, but I would expect such a process to happen incrementally because nearly 10% of the community wouldn't suddenly have invalid accounts. I have configured mailman to be lenient towards accounts that are bouncing messages, and over the last six/year months I haven't seen any of these mass un-subscribes.
I am no server nor Mailman expert so I would like feedback from those who might know a little more about this stuff than I. If it is just invalid accounts being kicked off then fine, it'll save the server from dealing with all the bounces, but if it's not, and think it's likely it's not then we have users dropping off the list that wish to remain subscribed which is bad news. If you've been affected by this (i.e. you've had to just resubscribe) or know one who's had this problem could you send notifcation of this problem into the list/me. I can then try and work out some pattern and start holding Dreamhosts toes the fire to sort it out.. yet again.
