Hi Noel,

We're not trying to assert that mail sent privately (after initiating
from a list) should be made public or subject to certain restrictions.
Simply this reinforces clauses 10, 11 and 12 of our constitution[0] that
it may be cause for a complaint to be made about a member.

I hope that helps.
