Absolutely!  In fact, altho I post with a real address, used for news replies 
only, it's heavily munged, and in ordered to get past the filter, a keyword 
must be inserted on the subject line in just the right way.  In addition, I 
use replytogroup.please as the munging, so they'll see that if they try to 
mail me, either originally or in the bounce.  I use PAN's custom header 
feature to insert x-munging header lines with demunging and keyword insertion 
instructions, then mention those in my sig.  (I had to do it that way to keep 
the sig under the max 4 line guideline.)  In addition, since I filter any 
HTML mail out for security and anti-spam reasons, I use the x-munging headers 
to warn about that, as well.  It's a lot of hoops to go thru, yes, but from 
my perspective, that's actually a GOOD thing, as I don't want mail replies 
unless they REALLY have a thing about posting whatever reply to the group.

As well, I've been known to kill filter folks, in both news and mail, for tar 
mailing me stuff that would have been better in the group, or trivial stuff 
that I don't want to deal with.  All those hoops mean I don't do that so 
much, any more, as they usually get the message.  (B4 I subscribed to these 
mailing lists, in support of news, I'd often go a week or two at a time 
between checking mail, while I normally check news several times a day, and 
reply to stuff there first, anyway.  Thus, a news reply gets a far faster 
response, anyway.)
