And, let's be realistic: this is the Internet. With all due respect to
Marcia (and without wishing to turn this into a flamewar), I think that
anyone posting to any mailing list should assume that what they have to say
is going into the public domain, and should post accordingly. It would be
courteous to ask someone before forwarding an email from them, but I don't
think it's something that should be expected - especially since the mailing
list is (I believe) archived, open to the world, in the wild.
The internet wants to be free... :)
