No, but as you notice, the mail address being used is firstname.lastname@example.org,
even if I put up another name as a front for that address, the address
will still be what is checked on.
The reason for replying to the subscribe mail is to check that the
mail-address used is in fact valid, and not just bogus address where the
mails would just get bounced back.
Again, I'm not 100% sure about all this, I only have a very basic
understanding of how the entire mail system works.
