[Mailman-Users] bypassing sending out the 'you have been subscribed' messages on mass subscriptions

If you're adding them through the web interface, there's a radio button just 
above the entry field; just click the one that says 'no' for 'Send welcome 
message to this batch?'. If you're doing it throught he command line with 
the 'add_members' command, there's this option:

    -w <y|n>
        set whether or not to send the list members a welcome message,
        overriding whatever the list's `send_welcome_msg' setting is.

Just type 'add_members -h' at the command line to get the help message for 
it. :)

If you're doing something other than these two options, hopefully someone else 
will have an answer. :)
