Yes...build a form that subscribes them using the email interface, assuming
you have the power to create email from your forms.

If you want them to be able to unsubscribe from your home page as well,
without bothering with a password, give everyone the same password in your
subscribe email messages.

Yes...that does away with the benefits of the password.  It's not suitable
for a geekish list for that reason.  But it works for kind, gentle,
rational people (all six of them left in the world).
