You are right, my bad. I didn't look at the source, just got all
excited when Google found the email address. The actual source has
   Christopher Woods &lt;christof&#64;infinitus&#46;<!--nospam-->co.uk
in the quoted text which is fairly well obfuscated, although running it
through a HTML -> text converter would recover it (which is what Google
obviously is doing).

The direct references are not recoverable via a HTML -> text converter:
   mailto:christof_at_infinitus.co.uk

This reinforces my contention that the leakage is likely _not_ the list
archives but rather 3rd parties.
