What are you referring to as "a public list", the Apache mailing lists or the Gmane newsfeed.
do not need moderator assistance to subscribe to either.

Or are you referring to getting a mail list carried by Gmane? If so, there were several options

regarding how email addresses are protected to prevent harvesting. The mangled addresses was

what was chosen for this list. (It is the only list I follow through Gmane that does this).

It can be changed by someone with the authority to do so.

This issue was discussed earlier on this list in one of the threads about mangled subjects.

Someone posted details on Gmane options. Nobody seems to have done anything about it.

Until this is changed in the Gmane setup, there is a simple way to prevent mangled subject

lines. Don't put an email address in the subject line.
