spammers on this list

Considering that the list archives can be viewed by anyone at
and be downloaded as gzipped plain text files that include the e-mail
address from which each message was sent, I think it's fair to say
there's next to nothing any list moderators could do to address spam,
and unless an alternative list either lacks public archives or has
archives that strip e-mail addresses from the from fields, it will be
just as vulnerable to spambots.
