Ken, Steve,

If you are worried about getting denied/filtered for the words
subscribe, join, or leave, then you could just add an alias in the alias
file to point to the same process as the one you want but with a
modified email addy.

Currently its something like this;
listname-subscribe:    "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman subscribe

Change it to;
listname-anything_you_like_here:    "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman
subscribe listname"

That I think would still work and not get cuahgt by any filter unless
they adjust it just to catch you.

Just an idea

These also seem to work, and I think (please correct me if I'm 
wrong) some spam filters keep a look out for the words 
"subscribe" and "unsubscribe"
