This spammer _was_ subscribed to the list (and this is not the first time I
saw spammer subscribe to send spam). You can check for LDOSUBSCRIBER in
X-Spam-* headers to verity. So even disabling posts from non-subscribers
wouldn't help in this case.

Since this issue has been brought many times, I don't want to explain why
debian lists are open to non-subscribers.

According to listmasters, the spammer was unsubscribed and filtered off.
