perhaps we could put something in the FAQ about it.

You should just say flat-out that the terms of the mailing list are incompatible with confidentiality and similar legal disclaimers because the way messages are archived make that technically impossible. Put it in the FAQ, put it in the message people get when they subscribe. Then enforce similarly to how bad top posting is dealt with now: everyone understands that people get only a curt response, perhaps just a pointer to the relevant documentation, and instead are told the specifics of their messages can't be addressed on the list while there's a disclaimer attached.

Just ignoring them altogether will just give the community a bad reputation for being unresponsive.
