Re: [ga] Majordomo 'who' command

Bret and all,

  I completely agree with Brett here.  Although there are ways around this
disabling, it is not a "Best Practice" in which to operate the Majordomo
command functions.  Should the DNSO List admin. Fail to restore the
'Who' command, I may find it advantageous to reveal how it can be
circumvented to a number or "Interested Parties".  I would therefore
suggest strongly that the Majordomo Commands, all of them be restored,
is a wise and prudent thing to do.
