Not wild about this, because people don't subscribe to lists, the list
subscribes to them. I'd hate to receive DMs from someone who added me to
@spammer/spammy_spam, for example; I didn't ask for that.

Unless what you're asking is to send DMs to people who *follow* that list?
I'm not wild about that either, since I may have no interest in the actual
person who made the list, but I'm less opposed to that than the former.
