Not checking for the subscriber list is what I thought dumb.

I would expect sublists to be specially configured, by or with list
owner approval, as you seem to imply below, rather than added thru
public subscribe mechanism.

No.  I have never had unlimited address availability.  I have exactly
1 from udel and 7 for the family from ISP.  But it soulds like a great
idea.  Just yesterday I got virus spam sent to names harvested from a
particular list.  If I had a special address for that list, I would
resubscribe with a new name.  If I ever buy a domain-name service with
'unlimited' email accounts, I will try this.  Thanks.
