Why are you even doing that?
If the potential subscriber has difficulty following simple instructions
on how to join the list, don't you think they might have a few problems
when they want to get off?
I think that if you have subscribers do anything other than mail
a -request address, ultimately you do yourself and the net-as-a-whole
an overall disservice.
(Exception granted for single-address automated list servers that
do reasonable things when mail is sent to the -request address.)
