Pretty easily done, but I hope everyone is aware that the MTA is
probably keeping a log of all mail, so it wouldn't be too big a trick to
identify the sender of a given piece of e-mail. I sure wouldn't trust
anyone who told me I could post anonymously without fear of reprisal.
Besides, an anonymous mailing list is just asking for someone to abuse
the list ("Hey, Rick, did you hear about this, like, anonymous mailing
list where you can send really gross stuff that absolutely freaks
everyone out but *no one* can figure out who sent it?")
