Actually it is the users fault.  Such systems should never be used with
mailing lists for the exact reason all this discussion is taking place.

Besides that TMDA systems is not a good solution for fighting spam. 
greylisting at the MTA and spamassassin will block 99%+ of the spam out
there and does not require the additional network bandwidth and handling
that TMDA systems do.  

And to get around he simply has to get one of the many gmail accounts
available and use that for mailing lists.  Or choose any of the free
email accounts that are available.
