Although when the lists are added to Gmane, an auto-generated notice 
*is* sent to the list-owner address explaining what has happened and 
giving them the option to easily opt-out by replying to the notice. 
It's possible in the Mailman case that there was some technicality that 
prevented this notice from being sent, or that the people raising havoc 
about this issue here weren't MM list-owners when the lists were first 
added to Gmane (years ago), and therefore didn't get the notice.
