Off topic here but I worked for a company that had an important database
owned under an employee's name. She had left the company some time back and
I was charged with transferring the database to a generic user and to not
break anything. Not a problem until I got laid off and the database
disappeared for a week. They feared I had gotten revenge but it was just
that this time someone noticed that an account created by a now ex-employee
was around and so should be deleted.

No. Only admins could get names but the number of subscribers was public.

public list of their emails an invasion of privacy.
I think that the list emails should be available only to the membership as
is the case now.
