Debian lists are open. It would be a policy change for all of them.
The idea is that you don't have to subscribe to post. Some people don't
like to have to "enlist" just to ask a single question. (Even if it
doesn't too much for a single list, IMHO, having to subscribe is way too
frequent these days.)

And if Windows users want to get help for their not yet installed debian?
Or, anything can happen, their not wishing-to-boot debian? 

The only way to stop spam is to stop buying their "stuff": if they spam
it's because it works enough to make profit.
