Ok. Show me a solution that will protect list administrator addresses and 
publicly accessable list archives from email harvesting, while allowing 
list subscribers and members of the public the ability to contact the list
admin in the event of a list related problem and allowing them to contact
an individual personally in response to some message in the archive. The 
solution must not penalize text only web browser users, or the disabled, nor
should it open up any other vectors for unsolicited mass emailing.

I'd really like to see one.
