As someone who has used the anon service, little about the
automatically generated message seems absurd to me. 

It does seem entirely possible that someone may
want to subscribe to leisure-topic lists (not to
say that the Who list is not as essential
as oxygen, food, and sex) without their "real" 
ID being known. (IE from a work account.)

Since some list server software allows members to review 
the list of all those addresses currently subscribed to
a list, "anonymous" signups can serve as a way to maintain 
some privacy.

(In extreme cases like this, however, I'd say it's time 
for our closeted Who fan to maybe think about a pay 

No real Who content, sorry - just my thought that the
proposed email on the topic to the anon admin guy seems 
more absurd to me than the informative message which was
