I would suggest taking this up with the mailman devs, except they already have acknowledged it: https://bugs.launchpad.net/mailman/+bug/266390 (as 30 seconds of googling would have shown you...)

I have yet to see a problem caused by this, since I never provide a password to mailman. Any mailman list I have ever used is configured this way.

I will gladly unsubscribe you from any of our lists if you would like; ingracious, misguided whining is unwelcome here.
