After joining this board I noticed that my spam rocketted. I've noticed the
same sort of effect on other boards but not so marked.

As you can see this list is popular with all kinds of folks :)

Some boards encourage people to use the list address for "to" and "reply to"
that way everybody always gets to see the answer. This list always always
sets "reply to" to my own email address.

Not this discussion again. Please search the list archives for reply-to.

My biggets concern though is that there are obviously email address
bots / people kicking about on lists and even changing reply to etc doesn't
defeat them as the originators email address is still buried in the source.

Setting an Reply-To is not obfuscating any other address in the mail
so i dont know how you would defeat address collection with this.

Why isn't it all stripped out by the lists server?

What exactly do you mean with "all"?
