Almost always indiscriminately. They probably would be wise to avoid mailing lists of sys admins, network admins, etc., but they don't. *shrugs*

Question: Is the member list with email addresses public?? Otherwise, one has to wonder how they got these addresses?
Everyone who posts does so with an email address that becomes known to everyone who subscribes and published everywhere someone publicly archives the messages. It's common practice by spammers to harvest addresses by subscribing to mailing lists.
