weird subscription

There are a number of questions I have concerning this:

     1. Why is this person/business sending subscription requests to
Ubuntu mailing lists?  This is an unusual situation at best.
     2. Why is this person/business sending multiple subscription
requests under multiple suspicious email account names, including an
spam@*** name?
     3.  Why is this person/business continuing to send multiple
subscription requests when he/she/it can clearly see it is causing us to
believe that he/she/it's a spammer?

The obvious conclusion is that he/she/it is a spammer.  Delete
his/her/its request, and/or put it in hosts/deny and be done with it.
