[Mailman-Users] Hiding list names [Was: Hiding email addresses in archives]

On a related note, on a site I'm associated with, we have a whole lot  
of mailing lists, and a number of them have recently been getting a lot  
of spam.  I assume that this is because the addresses have been  
harvested from the web site.  We blocked the main listinfo page so that  
it can only be seen by certain IPs, but that's a very ugly hack.  Is  
there a more interesting way to obscure the names of the mailing lists  
so that they can't be harvested?
