If you have mebership reminders active on other mailinglists this is a
problem because you dont get the bounces.

Additionally if the spammers use the web interface it does not help. I
had this problem: Somebody found it funny to try hundred times a day 
curl http://mydom.example.org/mailman/subscribe/mailman?email=victim@example.com 
I solved it by setting SUBSCRIBE_FORM_SECRET="some_ranmdom_string" in 
/etc/mailman/mm_cfg.py .
