Unfortunately, Mailman sends out the confirmation email before requiring approval.  I want to stop (or hold) the subscription request before the confirmation message goes out.

Maybe I have to look into a captcha integration?

I'm riding 100 miles (a full century) in the American Diabetes Association's Tour de Cure to raise money for diabetes research, education, advocacy, and awareness.  You can make a tax deductible donation to my ride by visiting http://emailsig.diabetessucks.net.  My goal is $6000 but any amount is appreciated.

See where I get my donations from ... visit http://emailsig.diabetessucks.net/map for an interactive map (it's a geeky thing).
