I don't have experience with GNU MailMan, but isn't there some facility to 
protect the subscription request page using some Googlesque "I'm not a Robot!" 
CAPTCHA, or anything like if GNU MailMan does not want to offer people to have 
whatever business with Google for any reason?

This, plus a black-listing mechanism which would warn admins (once!) when the 
same non-member subscription request has happened let's say twice, without user 
confirmation, and simply denies new requests for that same email until admins 
either validate the subscription or reset it.

Might complicate the work of robots enough to render the game uninteresting.

That's a personal preference, but I value mailing lists and appreciate much 
less web-based forums.
