I'm not sure the signal/noise ratio is so bad.

My "From:" is illegal, and my "Reply-to:" is on the list. What can I
do in this case?

Subscribing to a "special" list @lists.debian.org (I don't remember
the name of this special list) is a better way to do grey-listing:

First: the list already exists

Second: the mailing list server will have less load using this way.

I'm opposed to grey-listing, but if it becomes necessary, please let
them use the "no-messages" mailing list subscription.

*... scratching hard drive ...*

the list name is "whitelist@lists.debian.org" ... I subscribed this
list with my real email (Enveloppe-To: header), and now I can post
with fake addresses without the web-accessible archives problem.

Oops ... ;)
