Well, there's a limit somewhere. Some of this can be solved by substituting
values from the request header into the file, so their own address shows up
in the examples. (Of course, if the address in the headers is the right
one, they don't need to use an address at all.) But there's not much you
can do for users who don't understand what an example is. If we knew what
list they wanted on to, we'd have signed them up before then sent the
message and joined up with Psychic Friends Network.
A web interface is the only thing that will help the truly intellectually
challenged. (Ooh, buttons!) And they still have to understand what to do
with the confirmation token.
