You can keep the subscriber list on an announcement or anonymous
posting list fairly safe if you run the list on a machine that
you own.

Indeed. But if what a small company decides to move its subscribers to, say, a Yahoo-based list without asking the subscribers first? They may not feel comfortable with such a move given less local control, and isn't there then more reason to worry about leakage?

But admins who are worried about leakage should do what companies have done
for years: salt your data. You can subscribe AOL, or hotmail, or yahoo, or
(name your favorite free email) names that are ONLY used for the specific
purpose of trapping leakage. The problem, of course, is that those addresses
can (and do) leak in other ways
