Clearly you could do this by modifying the code in
Mailman/Commands/cmd_subscribe.py (for email subscribes) and
Mailman/Cgi/subscribe.py for web subscribes.

I can't think of any other way to do this. I did consider using the
ban_list and making an 'en' message catalog to change the 'banned'
message, but then you couldn't manually add the address either.
