It works, but it's childish...

As for the list names... there was an autoresponder subscribed to the list:
msinfo101@answerme.com

Subscribing such bogous autoresponders to mailing lists is legally actionable.
Technically speaking, they don't have to fetch the list of addresses. They
just set back and record every e-mail address that goes through the list.
