Hi all,

I recently sent an email on this mailing list (see 

Since then, I'm receiving spams on the email address I used to send the message.

After some research, it seems that this email address only appears on 2 
websites, notably this orgmode.org mailing list archive.

Would it be possible to configure the archive to obfuscate / hide the email 
addresses inorder to protect its users?

According to what I understand, this list uses the "GNU mailman" software, 
which in turn uses "Pipermail" for the archive. From what I read in the docs 
(https://www.gnu.org/software/mailman/mailman-member/node40.html ), the default 
configuration should be that the email addresses are protected : "The HTML 
archives which are created by Pipermail (the archiving program which comes 
default with Mailman) contain only obscured addresses.". So is there a 
particular reason why this option has been disabled?

Thanks for your feedback
