I'm using an announcement list subscription form on a new website with a fairly tech illiterate population. I'd like to disable the confirmation requirement upon subscribing as seems to be implied possible in the help docs for announce lists, but does not appear to be an option when setting up nor managing.
As an alternative, a discussion list would be /much/ easier all around as one can simply send an email rather than having to visit the dreamhost control panel, but I see the same confirmation problem with discussion lists -- and don't see a good way, other than requiring moderation, to use a discussion list as an announce list.
Thoughts? -- Primarily on toggling the announce list subscription confirmation requirement?
