I had turned on the option to "hide" the email addresses in mailman, which
is what is causing this behaviour, in order to make it harder for spammers
to harvest email addresses from the online archives.   However, I find it
as annoying as you do, and have disabled the option for now.  What I really
want is good email hiding in the archive not on the active list, but I am not
sure how to accomplish that.
