    This already exists.  The default setting is for every subscription to be
confirmed by the person whose e-mail was submitted.  The other options are to
require list manager approval (with no confirmation) or to require both list
manager approval and e-mail confirmation.  If your list behaves in any other
matter than these three, then you have a custom setup and there's nothing we
can do about that.

    Don't you think this defeats question (1) ?  Having it open for anyone to
subscribe anyone else does exactly the opposite from what you want to happen in
question (1).

W | I haven't lost my mind; it's backed up on tape somewhere.
