Don't mean to cut you off, but, I am hoping I can sell you on the idea that 
the ALE should have a list that doesn't condone/endorse/allow/encourage

Perhaps that address is "trashed" but some other members could have just 
changed their email address, and a new member just signed up.
ALE bumper sticker:  "Post if you want spam ;-)"
If nothing else, it is just very bad Netiquette to offer up every member's 
email address. Most members know it (for example, see the comment section of 
the blog article posted earlier) - we just don't do it as a group.

//never used such a filter and trying to prevent the need for one.
