For this list (freebsd-questions@) in particular it is intentionally and

This is because it is the main support forum for FreeBSD, and much
documentation exists directing people to ask their questions here.

This does, in fact, open up a distinct possibility for list subscribers
who  want to stop their address being harvested.

Subscribe to the list with one email address such that one receives the
list  emails but post to the list with  a different address.

Basically, what you (and others as well) are suggesting is that the list maintainers do double the work so that you don't have to bother with spam filtering.

Seems rather self-centered to me.

This is the internet. Spam is endemic. Short of encasing your computer in concrete, there's no way to avoid getting spam **even if you never post to a mailing list**. Either learn to deal with it or stop subscribing to lists.
