The "+" Approach (was: Poll: ... hide mail addresses)

> For instance, you could post messages to each list from
> a ``you+$TOKEN@xxxxxxxxxx'' address (where $TOKEN is some
> string depending on the list you are writing to) and then
> have your mail filtered based on that token ....

=v= I've tried this.  It resulted in spam being sent both
to you@ and you+token@, since the archives of the "+token"
list were harvested.  Others simply strip out "+token" from
their harvests.

=v= There's also the issue that some lists won't accept a
"+" in your email address, often because of lazy programming
on the server end or some such abomination as MS Exchange.
