I received this at an address used exclusively for my BLU Discuss
subscription. (It wasn't sent through BLU servers.)

This suggests they either coerced Mailman to give them the subscriber
list, or they have reversed the address obfuscation used by one of the
list archives.

(I've reported it as abuse using the link above. If you received a copy,
I encourage you to do so as well.)
