1,
I get quite a few of those, at another address. It's sent "from" me.

There's nothing to prevent anyone from subcsribing to this list and 
harvesting addresses of all contributors.

Before implementing SPF, google for and join some antispam lists. I did

CSV was regarded as preferable.
Here's the first hit when I asked google "why not spf."

I'm using google's cache because the original site's not available atm.
