I bet what's happening is that they're following the link to the
archives and then trolling through them for email addresses.  That
sucks.  Other than the URL you pointed us to, does anybody else have
any ideas of how to stop this particular mining?  Do we obfuscate
every email address in every message saved to the archive?  If so,
then can I get away with pushing that over the fence into the
archiver's responsibilities? :-)
