The quick fix is to remove the email adresses from the web version
of the mailing list archive.

On the other it is useful to have the adresses of the participants
to ask them questions that are not interesting to all subscribers.

One solution would be to add a login to the web interface.
A guest could browse the mailing list archive but would not
get the email addresses until he subscribes to the list
and is provided a login password.
With login one could access a web version of the ML with
full information disclosed.

This would work until the spammers subscribe to the list,
which hopefully would make them subject to removal by
the list admin.
