Quiddity closed T238871: Spam from a non-registered email address coming non-moderated to a restricted mailing list as Invalid.

You've got that address listed in the "List of non-member addresses whose postings should be automatically accepted." section ("Lista adresów osób nie będących prenumeratorami, których wiadomości powinny być automatycznie akceptowane."), hence this is working as expected.
Re: How it happened: I would guess that a list-moderator simply selected the wrong checkbox in the moderation screen, in the past. An easy mistake to make.
I have not changed it, or anything else, but it looks like there might be other entries that perhaps should not be listed there?

If the page is long, a reader would have to scroll all the way to the top to copy the link and remember the name of the section they wanted to share.

A radical proposal: Instead of a "share" link, have a "TOC" link that links to the relvant line in the TOC (rather like links from citations to where the citation lies in the body text).

Would it be useful to create some sort of inventory of gadgets (not necessarily names/URLs of the most used/important user scripts, but possibly an inventory of functionalities and workflows that editors use gadgets for)?

Very useful, and not primarily for interaction with MediaWiki changes (although that's useful as well). The increased discoverability of gadgets used by other communities would be a huge boon in itself.
