User on mailinglist that collects addresses to send spam?

wouldn't it be a consideration worth to hide or at least obfuscate mail addresses a bit more in mailman on this list here?
Mailman is able to obfuscate this better, see for example on

Since I wrote the first time here about the "offer" I got, I'm getting more and more "spam" in the last weeks on the address I registered here on this list.

How do you work with this situation? Update/add rules in Mailfilter until the next mail comes through? Cat and mouse game? ;)

Kind regards,

Just checked my spam-folder and what do I see? a mail from janisa at to my wireguard mail-address which I use only for this mailinglist. So I guess janisa at is collecting mail-addresses here and then sending unwanted spam-mails.
