It would, but you could subscribe and then immediately disable email
delivery for your subscription (so you'd still be a list member, and so
allowed to post, but wouldn't get any email from the list).

It depends on which posts get bounced <wink>.  I get so many spams, worms,
etc, that I wouldn't notice the difference if python-dev stopped leaking
them.  Presumably other people would notice.
