If you don't like their policy, please bring the issue with the list
management. You know, they can be easily reached at owner-info-
cyrus at lists.andrew.cmu.edu as per the Sender: header.

Addressing the list (or me) on this matter is pointless, since we - the
other subscribers and me - are not more capable of changing list
policies than you are. Your message was just received by thousands (?)
people who are not able to fulfill your request, no matter what they
think about it.
