	I think it's only hitting posters, whose addresses are revealed in
the From header. I'll probably get some extra spam now. Given that it is
desirable that non subscribers can post questions and get replys thanks to
the common habit of replying to all this is unavoidable without sacrificing
that capability which has been a long standing and valued feature of
FreeBSD mailing lists.
