Are you saying that your subscription to this list went as expected
including the confirmation e-mail and then only after you posted you
got a confirmation request from the other list?

That's an interesting theory, but it still could be a coincidence. If
your theory is correct, why just attempt to subscribe you. why not
subscribe you without confirmation required? And, why not subscribe me

Then again, maybe there's someone picking on you?
