Yup. I use majordomo, and I have an administrative account called
'majordom' that majordomo runs as.
I probably get 2 or 3 people a week sending requests to majordom
rather than majordomo.
List management software that either use listname-COMMAND addresses
or (worse) accept administrative commands at the posting address
do nothing but confuse the masses (IMHO).
