[OT] mails with exclamation marks + mailman security flaw



Please people... don't put so many exclamation marks in your mail
subjects. It triggers my bounce filter.

Postfix config:
/^Subject:.*!!.*/ REJECT To many exclamation marks. You give me a
migraine. Go Away.

mail.log:
May 23 14:12:02 localhost postfix/cleanup[19013]: 7AFE65A177: reject:
header Subject: Re: [!!] Install the GRUB boot loader on a hard disk from
chlorine.canonical.com[91.189.94.204];
from=<ubuntu-users-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> to=<amedee-ubuntu@xxxxxxxxx>
proto=ESMTP helo=<chlorine.canonical.com>: 5.7.1 To many exclamation
marks. You give me a migraine. Go Away.

To re-enable your membership, you can simply respond to this message

You can also visit your membership page at

On your membership page, you can change various delivery options such
as your email address and whether you get digests or not. As a
reminder, your membership password is

*CENSORED*

Also, why does Canonical store the mailing list passwords in plain text? I
use lots of different passwords so it's not a big security problem for me.
But I still find this one of the biggest WTFs in the Mailman software.

I might even file a bug report. Or add to the already existing bug report:
