This is not necessary.  What you do, is subscribe your posting address
to the list and then change the settings to `no mail delivery'.  That
way you are `subscribed' but don't actually get the mails in the
wrong mailbox.

This is a bit of faff, which is unfortunate, but I think on balance
that I'd rather have a list I had to wrestle the MLM software for
once, than one that's full of spam.

I'm working on software to do this in my Copious Free Time (tm).
