That's the subscribeack.txt file located in $prefix/templates. It isn't
modifiable on a per-list basis. When you subscribe people to you list
(say, using the bulk-add in the admin screen), you can choose to not
send it to them.

There is also a flag on a per-list basis on whether to send that

So... either edit the template (for all lists) or turn it off.
Unfortunately, there isn't a middle ground of per-list announcements.
