I don't understand why you guys are surprised by this.

I am not surprised that any list at is found
quickly.  It's no particular problem to harvest a mailman lists page,
and I have seen a depressing number of occurrences of mailman-specific
list hacks.  (Spammers autosubscribing to the list and then sending out
spam.  Thankfully still pretty rare, but frightening.)

Anyway, the address appears on the main mailman list pages, e.g.,

I can't imagine what the httpd logs would show.  We aren't going to stop

My answer is to put address@hidden in as a moderator, ensure
admin_immed_notify=yes and generic_nonmember_action=hold, and forget
about it.
