That's not a solution, since spammers can easily instruct their bots to
parse those addresses also. I think that restricting archive access is
the only valid solution, although this would require a logging system to
prevent that people (spammers) subscribe to lists, scrape the archive
for e-mail addresses and then unsubscribe.
