It would be possible to try to detect and process these. My former
list processor (IIRC, it was Majordomo) did that, and the first
non-default configuration I did was to disable it because two users
with broken procmailrcs sent "why can't I subscribe" messages to the
list. I didn't see them, but they did result in multiple
subscriptions. A good time was had by all ... not.
