All right, Stefan, I'll stop worrying about it.  I hadn't thought that
spammers would subscribe to these lists just to harvest addresses, but
that's obviously possible too.

Even if it could, it wouldn't help you.

I've just removed your email address from the attribution my MUA
generates. 8-)

Marc is by far not the only way a spammer can get at your address you
use for posting here.  Eyebrowse is another option, as are our mbox
archives.  It's even quite easy to subscribe an address collecting bot
to the list.

There is no way to avoid that, all you can do is to use smart spam
detection software on your side, sorry.  Spammers will get your address
if you use it on public lists and no address munging will stop them from
doing so.
