In response to my post, I got what I'm sure is the same message from
chlee at It isn't all Korean. If you scroll down, you'll
find the English version of the text:

"This is chlee -at- myasset -dot- com -dot-
Please complete the verification so that I can receive your email.
"After finishing this verification, you can be in my address book
forever and won't need to do it again."
This is the confirmation e-mail for blocking spam e-mail. If this isn't
e-mail for you after checking the e-mail title, sender's e-mail address
and body, don't finish the confirmation process."

So, chlee has subscribed to the list with an email address that uses a
challenge-response spam filter -- a very bad idea.

Since you forwarded it to the admin, I suspect chlee will be
unsubscribed (and maybe get a message explaining why).
