I strongly oppose this suggestion. It is frequently needed to e-mail
the author of a mailing list message that has been posted a long time
ago, and a chance of doing so is worth it.

Additionally, again, Martin already said that Debian mailing lists are
publicly archived on the web in a truckload of places. And, again,
additionally, nothing keeps the spammers from subscribing to the
mailing lists themselves.
