Well the possibilities that occur to me, none of which are new:
- It may have been forged by someone else, as an attempt to mail-bomb
the real owner of this address with the content of hundreds of lists.
- It could be a spammer collecting e-mail addresses.
- It could be another one of those "helpful" web sites that collects
your list content and makes it available on their web site.
There are probably more that I haven't thought of. In any case it's
pretty unlikely to be someone honestly interested in reading about a
long list of carefully alphabetized but unrelated subjects...
