That's what I do. Here's my Pending Subscription notice:
"Dear Prospective Member,
Thank you for your interest in the <GroupName> group.
Groups such as <GroupName> occasionally suffer from individuals who join groups to harvest email addresses and "spam" the membership. So before your application is approved, would you please tell us a little more about your involvement with <GroupSubject>? Just a few lines will do, such as where you live, your name, your aspirations regarding <GroupSubject>or the names of any <GroupName> members you might know. If your email address is cryptic, please provide your proper name, not a pseudonym or business name - anonymous applicants will not be approved.
We're sorry for the extra step, but we trust you'll understand that we simply have our members' interests at heart.
Please send your reply to <GroupName>+email@example.com
If you do not reply then you are clearly not very interested in our group and your application is likely to be rejected.
The Owner and Moderators of the <GroupName> group."
If I get no reply within a day or two, I reject the applicant.
