    Well, I have never been assigned a penet id . . . . This probably
    rules out the "who cypherpunks" attack.

If by "who cypherpunks" attack you mean that someone could be
subscribed using an an*@anon.penet.fi, you most certainly cannot rule
that out.  an111447@anon.penet.fi continues to be subscribed:

  Subject: Majordomo results: who cypherpunks

  . . .


Perhaps someone could remove this address (or replace it with
na111447@anon.penet.fi) and/or get the anon.penet.fi administrator to
beat on this person (electronically of course).
