I can indeed. A couple months ago I added an undocumented feature to the
majordomo list server running on Lucifer. Anyone can send a message to with "count virus" in the body of the message. You
will soon get a reply similar to this:

Number of members of list 'virus': 150

Interestingly the count has remained very close to 150 since I started
checking regularly a couple months ago even though it usually get 5
new subscribers/day.
