I see...

Well then, I'd like to propose to disable address-encryption (if this is
possible at all) for gmane.comp.lang.haskell.emacs, because

 a) it's inconvenient for users reading mailing lists via gmane's NNTP,

 b) it's not effective IMO as long as the Mailman archive at exposes the
    unencrypted email addresses which are easily picked up by
    email-crawlers anyway.

Discussion period: 3 weeks starting now
