Well, I haven't gotten the INFO REFCARD back from the listserver yet, but I
know that some list software offers the ability to choose whether or not
you want the full headers from the original sender--which would show us who
really sent the messages, or at least where they sent them from. And you
can set an acknowledgement command that sends you a confirmation message
when you post to the list, but doesn't require a response.
