Confirmed, I talked to Anthony about it and it was seemingly a
good-faith change (he thought, that all new email adresses would be
moderated per default anyway).

Sorry for the accusations, I withdraw them.

It really looked as if it was an attempt to circumvent a moderation
(which is not unheard of either...). I thought that if he had wanted
to just change the address, he would have changed the address in the
options instead of subscribing with a new one.

Anyway, nothing to see here, move on...
