Re: Listserv membership

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I hope that there is no such easy way to list subscribers.  If there 
is, it would be yet another source for mass-mailers/spammers.  I get 
enough junk mail as-is.

I realize that the archive can be "mined," but that would, at least, 
take a bit more effort.

This is a vote for keeping the list as confidential as possible.
