What is the security impact of sending "nobody" to /dev/null ? I have
some Majordomo mail-lists that I brought over from Linux, and the
digesting method contain reference to nobody. This means that by default,
as root is "nobody", I get a copy of every message in every mailing-list.
So, I just sent nobody to /dev/null to keep my sanity, but there must be
an impact I'm not seeing yet ...
