Hi Bret:

I can understand (although I do not share) your concerns. Perhaps you
would be interested to know that Mailman allows you to opt-out of such
lists in the Subscription options page? (See [1] below for what I mean.)

I would also point out: first, that the mailing list does indicate that
the list is available to subscribers[2] - although this note is easily

yes, enter your password in the field below, and click 'Submit My

[2] First paragaph under the heading 'List Subscribers' says 'The
subscribers list is only available to the list members.' at
