Because in the case I'm thinking of, it looked like snort-users or
snort-sigs was scraped to find addresses of people to send marketing
material to.  On some lists that is grounds for unsubscribing the
person who is doing the address harvesting.

Basically, when I post to a technical list I don't expect to get
marketing copy in reply, on- or off-list - unless I specifically asked
for it.
