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.

Conversations are so difficult. You risk changing yourself, admitting 
were wrong, coming to appreciate the other person's perspective.  --
