The simples solution is to switch this feature off by altering the
list header for LISTSERV so that the default will be RENEW=NONE.

At the moment the list headers are being reorganised, and hopefully
nobody will be asked to confirm their subscriptions ever again.
This will make more work for yours truly since I then have to hunt down
dead mailboxes, but that can't be any worse than writing lots of
explainations about the workings of LISTSERV.
