They always have been. It is inherent in the software (which I use
for some 10 lists).
However, I have no problem in downloading and opening the files with
any of a variety of unzippers (I use 7-zip as my standard). I don't
really see that there is much of a problem.
(On those lists where the archives are private, you have to enter your
password to access them. This unencodes the downloadable file. That
would be a solution, but not a desirable one.)
