I did read the FM and I'm well aware of the difference between the lists
command and the subscribe command.  That's not what I'm talking about.

There must be a bug in it somewhere, then, because I often see people getting
added to Mail-Followup-To that shouldn't be there.  In fact, I personally

lists command at all.
