I reject 99% of it anyway, I just see it on my rejection webpage,sorted by

I have a an idea for stopping this.
Post a message to teh list with an email address in the signature that is
slightly different for each recipient. Then that will tell the listmaster
which address was used to harvest the email address from.

Example: I post a message to the list and have a signature that like such
Joe Smith -Debian Lover

Then this address listed in the signature of the email is then subtly
modified by a pre-delivery script for each recipient.

So recipient 1 gets this address:

recipient2 gets this address:

When mail is sent to either of this address, the address the address was
harvested from is obvious.
