You must be new on the net...
This is a public list. There is no way to prevent spammers (or anyone
else) from harvesting your address for their own purposes.
As for "volume of spam", I am not certain what you are complaining about.
I get next to no spam these days. Little, if any are posted to this list.
But then again, I use greylisting on my mail server and that kills 90+% of
all spam my mail server receives. Spam Assassin gets most of the rest.
You are not encountering a problem with Fedora, you are encountering a
problem that exists with e-mail lists as a whole.
