In fact, based on the rapidity of the spam replies, I was a little
suspicious of the suggestion that they're being harvested from the
public archives. Checking the message headers reveals that these
replies are actually being generated directly from the mailing list,
since they contain a valid In-Reply-To Message-Id.
So, these are actually being generated by a subscriber on the list.
