I received this email, and I wanted to pass it along.  The executive
summary is: in the near future subject lines to nmh-workers will no
longer be prefixed with "[nmh-workers]" and there won't be a footer
at the end of the message anyone saying that this is the nmh-workers
mailing list.  You can read the details in the message for the complete
technical reasons why this is happening; the other option is to do
what is called "Munge From" and I personally think this is 100x worse
(I am on a Yahoo mailing list where this is done and I hate it).  If
people think we should switch to "Munge From" for this mailing list,
then please make your case here.


yahoo is way off the reservation with this. they aren't growing fast enough for me to care which of their users can't join mailing lists i operate -- so my first mover advantage dominates the outcome.

anyone who wants me to change a protocol or a norm so that more of the internet can be centralized by monetizers can go pound sand. (same for EDNS client subnet.)
