Consider something like

for list in `bin/list_lists --bare`
do echo $1 | bin/add_members -r - -w y -a n $list

in the Mailman installation directory, cd there and run

./script user_to_subscribe at example.com

See bin/add_members --help for an explaination of the options.

You'll still need to set Privacy options->Sender
filters->default_member_moderation to No for each list if you don't
want the new member to be moderated.
