Good point (thanks for the notification Bill). I've done two things:

1. added the following line to subscribe.html, a Mailman template which 
is shown when a user has subscribed:
"Before you post to a list, please read the netiquette rules. Thanks and 
have fun!" ("the netiquette rules" is a link to the FAQ)

2. Add a similar statement to each -support, -dev and -discuss 
mailinglist in mail.html on the website.
