SmartList in its effort to be... well ... SMART, attempts to sort out
subscription requests that are incorrectly sent to the list, redirect them to
the request address, and subscribe them automatically which is what has
happened in this case. SmartList also includes a WARNING when sending out
the confirmation of subscription that future requests should be sent to the
request address. I think that's pretty darn smart. :)
