Well, I'm on... (counts) over 40 different lists of various
amounts of traffic, and all but 2 or 3 munge the headers.
I think you just happen to be on a minority of lists that
don't do it...
But... I think the most important thing to remember is the
original "Oh no" post. No one is ever going to win this
The only way to be sure is to take a vote, but considering
there's usually only a couple people that don't want munging,
and at least 50 (probably considerably more) subscribers to
the trilug list, I doubt no-munge would win.
