If there is support for it I can ask gmane to swith it off. But this is not 
a good idea i find.

The email adress is not realy mangled but "encrypted". If you send a email 
to  a @public.gmane.org email adress you recieve a auto-responds that you 
have to confirm befor it is forward to the real adress.

It is a very good anti-spam function and you still can send a email to 
person. It is one the reasons i like the gmane acces to much, your email 
adress is save from spammers.
