So what I was thinking is true.  Thanx.

It's a "onetime" address.  When I mail to unknown destinations (which
includes lists -- which allow anonymous posting anyway) a unique return
address is created for that message and it is logged.  If the address
starts attracting spam at some point, a) I know where the leak is b) I
can turn it down (assuming it's outlived it's usefulness) to prevent
the spam from successfully even being delivered to may mail server or
c) I can add it to my spam-traps for early detection and resistance of
spam sources.
