Do a google search for your email. Flame offending webmeisters.

I _can_ configure postfix to receive email for this address only from 
Red Hat's servers. That would have the additional benefit of preventing 
off-lit replies:-)

I have also thought of subscribing two addresses to lists, setting one 
to "no mail" and deleting the account at the receiving end.

The "no mail" address would be the one I write from.

Another idea I've had is to run mailman. Subscribe relevant lists to it, 
maybe me and use the mailman's address to write from.

I've never seen anything like those numbers. Maybe my antispam works.

I get some spam, including recently to this address, so clearly every 
spammer on Planet Earth has had the opportunity of getting my email

Of course, not so many for Linux.
