I think we should do something about this in MM3.  Instead of displaying the
individual owner addresses, we should advertise the -owner address and send
the message through the normal Mailman processing.  That way, if anti-spam
defenses were implemented in the toolchain (either in the MTA or as an add-on
to Mailman), you'd at least have a hope of catching them.

Interesting that you can get the full email address after a captcha dance.
