Only Aroid-L subscribers get our posts, and only subscribers can access 
the new list archive we've started on the Gizmoworks server (although the 
Hort.net archive of Aroid-L is public!). But I'm not aware of any list 
software that hides the sender's address from the other members of the 
list, and I'm on an awful lot of lists.

(That would make it impossible for someone to reply privately to you when 
you post to the list, and it would hose a lot of the e-mail filters people 

For someone to harvest your address from Aroid-L, they'd have to subscribe 
to the list themselves to get the posts (and we require confirmation for 
all subscribtion requests, which is usually pretty effective at weeding 
out address trollers), harvest them from the Hort.net archive, or get them 
from the computer of someone else who is already subscribed to Aroid-L. 
None of those seem to be happening a lot with Aroid-L, based on the spam 
I see to the list and to me. When I approve posts, I do see a bit of spam 
both to the list and to me on the rebound, but not much compared to what I 
see from other sources.

Of course, when you're a listowner, you just have to accept a large daily 
helping of spam as part of your e-mail diet ....
