The *average* net user is NOT in the habit of using Majordomo. Perhaps
you've missed the listone, listbot, etc, but most people are used to
subscribing from web pages.

And, frankly, NO ONE should have to remember the name of a list manager to
subscribe. The way majordomo and listserv do it is broken. It should have
been "listmaster" or something else that was supported by everyone.
