I fail to see that having the e-mail address on the list is a problem
since it appears on everyones posting (except Tim's). Why would someone
post to the list if they did not want to enable people to communicate
with them.
Any vicious spammer could do what Tom Cameron has done to get the e-mail
addresses. Has anyone noticed that spammers are a problem using
addresses from this list?
