No, Sam is correct. Here's an extract from the confirmation message I got when
I subscribed a while ago -- the message body was
    SUBSCRIBE CLASSICCMP pete_at_dunnington.u-net.com

NAQ (Never Asked Questions) 0.1

How do I subscribe?

Subscribing to this list is slightly more challenging than
most. Read the instructions below.

1. Send a message to listproc_at_u.washington.edu with the line

        subscribe CLASSICCMP your-address

in the body of the message.

2. Send a message to bill_at_booster.u.washington.edu introducing
yourself and explaining why you wish to be added to the list.
