Well, the Welcome message says this:

->If you ever want to remove yourself from this mailing list,
->you can send mail to "[email protected]" with the following command
->in the body of your email message:
->    unsubscribe cypherpunks [email protected]

So it is but a small leap of logic to remove the 'un' in order to
subscribe, since to my knowlege the Welcome message does not tell you how
to subscribe. A human interface problem?
