The way humbug avoids this issue is to provide two list-addresses for 
each mailing-list.  One of these addresses is the list itself, the other 
provides a convenient way for subscribers to register any other 
addresses they wish to post from.  Eg.  There is a general mailing list 
and a general-post mailing list.
