Yes, I was a participant in that thread. I tried a couple of times each 
the requested "blank email" both with and without a subject and each was
rejected as spam. I never tried adding anything to the body. Finally I did
receive the confirmation email instructing me to click the provided link to
send confirmation back that I really wanted to subscribe. I did that and it 
also rejected as spam. Again I tried both with and without a subject line.
Finally, I searched around the Apache main site until I found a contact
address the suggested it would actually go to a person. I emailed it with
a description of my problem, including the link from the confirmation email.
The next day I received another email from the autoresponder that I had
successfully subscribed. The whole ordeal consumed several days and
probably consisted to close to a dozen emails.
