Can I ask a follow-up question.  Excuse me if this was on the list 
before; I don't recall seeing it in my glance at the digests...

Are you by chance getting spammed by subscription requests from a few 
select IP's?  Maybe trying to subscribe the same email-to-text address 
in each flood of attempts?  This is happening to us over the last couple 
days.  I'm not sure if they're trying to spam the poor person with that 
phone/text number or if they're trying to hack into our mailman or 
collect addresses.  It's quite annoying, though.

Perhaps the answer is captcha, however I see that as being frowned upon 
in the list archives.

So, is anyone else getting hit by a bunch of requests lately?  And I'll 
look forward to any solutions to Larry's request.  :-)

thank you
