I've never had an e-mail address collected from a mailing list. I have
had e-mail addresses collected from web sites. E-mail spiders run all
the time. I'd say there's a _very_ big difference.
On usenet, I can use a fake e-mail address. On my web site, I can use
hidden e-mail addresses. On this mailing list, I don't have such an
option - if the e-mail address isn't real, I don't get postings. I
want the posting; I don't want the spam!
