I think it is the appropriate default.

Why do you not want your clients to get the welcome message? If you
think the message is inappropriate, you can edit the template via the
list admin GUI "Edit the public HTML pages and text files" link.

And yes, I assume you are using the admin Mass Subscription page to add
members. There is a "Send welcome messages to new subscribees?" radio
button on that page.

If you mean "cancel" the ones already sent, no, you can't do that.
