My web host provides a Mailman mailing list software. I would like to use it to provide direct subscription to a mailing list, as you see on many websites. You know, where you type in your e-mail, click a button, and you are then subscribed to a mailing list.
This is a very good way to get yourself )and your ISP) listed in every list of spammers known, and then some.
Bad bad bad bad bad idea. Some scumball starts hitting that page with millions of subscribe requests and then uses your list to deliver his spam. No thanks.
