My theory is that the lists are spammed because of address farming rather than a human entering email addresses into a software program. Such an automated system could be defated by requiring the presece of a custom message header such as X-I-Am-Not-A-Spambot: yes. People with valid traffic could instruct their mailer to add this header, and computers sending spam to any address they come accross would not know to insert these headers.
