Yes. Very annoying, very "known" and broadly discussed by Martin Maechler

No real solution besides cloaking. We think spammers actually subscribe but
do not have full proof. Maybe it is just web archive harvesting.

The spam bots write there too, so my aggregate 'owner' folder for different

as -owner, I just can't. Hence address removed.
