Because all it takes is one listowner that doesn't understand and does a 
mass subscribe of a number of people, some of those people complain and then 
the entire ISP gets blacklisted.  And some blacklists you simply cannot 
*EVER* get them to remove you.

Personally, I would be happy to see the "mass subscribe" feature go away 
completely from the web interface of Mailman, or at least disabled by 
default.  But then I've been fighting spam since the time I was the Sr. 
Internet Mail Administrator at AOL in '95, and this is a subject that I feel 
very strongly about.
