Hmmm, most of the spammers do that. Has one been prosecuted?

The mail would come from vger, and it would have these headers intact:

Is that good enough? I'm not a UK resident, so the transmission
to vger is legal. I would not pretend to be someone else.

I still think the gateway and archives should obscure addresses.
I find spam in my mailbox every day, all of it because this list
exposes my address on usenet.

Does anybody remember why we use a mailing list instead of a
newsgroup? Because vger has too much extra CPU power? :-)
No, because we like to avoid spam and dumb questions. Oh, and
because email is faster in theory.
