This would only been possible if the spammer had an account at the ML.
I don't think that's likely, we're actually too small and so I think we
are sailing under the radar of the big spammers.

But spammers use bots and they could crawl the archive:

It is also possible, however, that computers of members of the ML are
hacked so that they expose mailadresses to spammers.

Anyway, If you exchange mail with a lot of recipients (and this is what
a mailinglist is for) it's a matter of time that your address will be in
the hand of spammers.

Spam filters exist.

Alles Gute
