The default behavior is NOT to run the subscribe robot, but to run a
recorded message that tells three things clearly: how to subscribe, how to
unsubscribe, and how to reach a human. We also cc mail to a list's
-request address to the list-owner for inspection. Listening for commands
at the -request adress is NOT the default behavior. The original
configuration, before you could even do this, is to run request-answer
there; I still do this, because I find users deal with it better.
