FWIW, I kinda doubt this makes any difference for gnu.org mailing list
addresses (and I have a small doubt about your last implication), with
the address being up on the gnulib home page anyway.

Since I can't prove this though, here's another argument: be kind to
your users by making it easy for them to respond.  The listhelper is
quite powerful in killing virtually all spam (thanks Bruce and Karl!),
so for me, the increase in work resulting from more spam is pretty much
negligible (ignoring the computing resources needed for mail volume for
a moment).

Just my humble 2 cents,
