Yes.  In extremis, you could ask Lars & Co. "Please remove
our list", and they would.  (Lesser options, e.g. no posts
from gmane to the list, are more common.)

Further details how it works at http://www.gmane.org/

gmane is not mailing lists entangled with regular usenet
newsgroups.  It is *nothing but* mailing lists, delivered
over nntp.  It's the dog's biscuit.
