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.
