You could do it on your own: just start a new mailing list somewhere else,
then subscribe it to email@example.com as a post-only member. You can do
such a thing by sending an email like this:
subscribe firstname.lastname@example.org unicode
disable email@example.com unicode
Where "firstname.lastname@example.org" is your hypothetical new list, and "disable"
tells the Unicode server not to send email@example.com messages to your
What should happen, is that firstname.lastname@example.org members will see all posts
to the email@example.com, but firstname.lastname@example.org members will not see
other email@example.com messages.
Some drawbacks are:
1) firstname.lastname@example.org members won't even see replies to their own message
from email@example.com, unless you allow non-members to post on the your
list (but this exposes you to spam), and firstname.lastname@example.org members bother
to CC the email@example.com when talking about Arabic script.
2) People joining both mailing lists may receive double messages.
3) You miss Arabic-related discussion on firstname.lastname@example.org, unless someone
bothers to forward them to email@example.com.
4) And other problems that only Sarasvati can anticipate...
