You know, I have a quite simple form for my convenience: I just click on
an email address, and it is being removed from the list instantly. It's a
nice BOFH feature that I once requested, and Mads Martin Joergensen has
made it.

We can't use a hack for this, not for that machine. It delivers many
hundred thousand emails a day, and there is quite some security interest
there. I can't spare the time for it atm.

Things are very busy these days, but we're improving and will be no1 soon
again. Avoiding security problems in our own infrastructure by not
introducing hacks is the minimum we can do.
