[Mailman-i18n] Malicious subscriptions

Hi everyone :)

I hope you won't mind me asking this on the i18n list. My daughter's  
email was subscribed without her knowledge or consent to a Mailman  
list today. I wrote to the list-owners, but it struck me that there  
probably isn't much they can do about spam registrations.

All the same, I was annoyed that this had happened (I filter my  
daughter's mail to protect her), and I think other parents and people  
whose email addresses are abused in this way won't understand that  
it's not Mailman's fault.

Is Mailman doing anything to protect itself from spammers?
