The problem is that the lists (or at least the pypy list) got mirrored
somewhere without having the addresses obscured. Spam robots found
the mirrors and scanned for email addresses as they usually do. The
addresses then circulate between the spammers and get on more and more
lists. It doesn't matter whether the list reflectors forward spam or
not. Spammers send crap to the addresses directly.
