I don't think that there is such a list as
majordomo-owners @
 greatcircle .
 com .
   Perhaps you meant majordomo-users?  If
you want to discuss technical solutions to your problem, please reply to
majordomo-workers @
 greatcircle .
 com .
   In any case, this is solely a Majordomo
issue and is completely off-topic for list-managers.

If you're running majordomo on the -request address you'll probably get
this.  I'll see if I can't whip up a solution and get it into 1.94.

If the request wen to majordomo it would have been an error because
the subscribe command requires a list name.

The solution to allowing bad addresses onto your lists is confirmed
subscribes.  This also solves the problem of spam and forged subscriptions.
Unfortunately you might not be able to run it because it requires the
people on the other end to do just a little more work.
