As per mailman response below, this list does NOT disclose subscriber
email addresses to anyone other than admins. I'm quite certain that the
spam is due to harvesting of emails off the web archive. This is affirmed
further by the fact that I have gotten spam on a brand-new account from
which no one ever emailed, and which was only _mentioned_ in a _message_
on this list a couple of times. Unless someone created a special account
just for this list, subscribed it, and never posted from there, and still
got spam on it, there's no good reason to believe the subscriber list is
being disclosed.
