This is a very good point. Sometimes I wish there was an easy way to

Yow. I don't know where "whiz-bang-fancy-graphics" came from. I
generaly don't plant a million 255-color GIFs on a page like some
sites seem to bask in. I mean something as simple as a graphical
table of lists, once you're "logged in".
I also agree that this is more "useful" for administration, not
individual list subscription. That could be handled with a "mailto:"
feature more than anything else:
<P>Subscribe to the foobar-users mailing list by emailing
<A HREF="mailto:email@example.com">MajorDomo</A> and putting
<I>subscribe thislist</I> in the body of the message.</P>
Anyway, bozon particle filters can usually be erected :-).
