I was surprised that the list seems to be "open", 
that i can post with an other eMail address i'm subscribed with.

Many other lists are "closed", only "subscribers" can post
on them, making spaming much more difficult.

On those "closed" lists i have 2 accounts, to avoid
getting non-list emails (mostly spam) to my list account
or that address into spamers database.
One address only for the mails from the list,
and one addresse i use to post to the list. 
To avoid getting the list twice that "post only" account
is in "vacancy" for the next 10000 days (there is a year 2036
problem at least in "listar"...).
