them about it, asking them to subscribe, and I mention the no-mail
option that they can use.  The problem is that this is very

Is there some easy way to subscribe people and set the no-mail option
in one quick shot?  This way I can have my script tell them that if
they keep posting without subscribing then I'll do it for them, with
an explanation of the few implications (that most people won't care
