I wasn't sure if that was what he meant, but if so, I'm wondering (a) how
many spambots can use that trick (and why don't I see spam on all the
lists I'm on that only require a confirm), and (b) your question about
what process the human uses before approving (that will be effective in
excluding spambots and letting real people through).
