I think only the moderators would know how many of the majordomo emails
are being caught by the filters below.  My guess is that there are very
few aside from subscribe/unsubscribe.  "who", "which", and "info" seem
like they are likely to be caught in normal emails.

What if we disable most of these and see how many get through to our
list, again keeping subscribe/unsubscribe and "remove me"?
