(Yeah, I did get there eventually, both times (possibly more). It
didn't help that I spend a few good minutes reading around only to end
up learning that it's a silly acronym that could have been spared...)

I thought that this could be a motivation too -- but first, at least the
"foo at cygwin dot com" could be used, and second, I checked other lists
there and some do list their address. (And as someone who managed a
relatively popular bunch of mailing lists, I can definitely say that not
writing the mailing list's address on a web page is not going to make a
noticeable dent at the amount of spam it receives...)
