I would recommend changing the wording as, at least to me, that
sounds like a closed list. There is no indication that someone could
actually send to the list if they were subscribed.
Well, I'm not sure why this is suddenly confusing. This very list you
are posting on is setup the same way (you have to subscribe to post).
I guess the wording could be better and mention that you may need to
subscribe to post. List admins can customize the default. Might be good
to look and see if mailman3's message is similar.
