I can confirm that the spams I've received have come directly to my
blinux-specific email address as none of the headers have looked
like they were transmitted through the list-server. It looks like
Henry has a similar blinux-specific address.  So it looks like the
spammer harvested the email addresses either by subscribing to the
list as a lurker and harvesting the addresses of people as they send
messages here; or they found a message archive and slurped in all the
list addresses from there.

My local spam filter (bogofilter) has caught most of them but a few
have still managed to slip by into my mailbox.

Alas, the sad state of affairs on mailing lists.
