The problem is there's no way to stop a widely-read list from having its 
email harvested. I dont think the main archive site exposes 
email addresses, but there's not much that can be doen about other sites 
publishing the archives (they do), and not much that can be done about 
spamming, or here, some form of 419 scam.
