The command below is the result of someone sending a similar subscribe
command which subscribed the nanog list to itself, causing the welcome
message to be sent to the entire list.  Majordomo apparently accepts
lists of people to subscribe or treats everything after the mailing
list name as part of the name subscribing.  Either way, the effect is
the same.

Again, disregard it.  It's an error.
