I haven't commented on this before, but the reason I find this solution
lacking is that most mailman lists (in my experience) don't require list
admin permission to join.  If this is the hurdle, as a spammer I'd just
create a hotmail account that I can automatically subscribe to any mailman
mailing list, and then gain access to the honeypot.
