I got an request from <firstname.lastname@example.org> to
subscribe to my list. What’s this about?
We are trying to subscribe to many mailing lists, so that we can
build an archive of the contents here. Everything put out here
will link back to your mailing list. We will also try to link
posts to posters. In this way, we hope that we can support an
ecology of small communities rather than having the big
commercial companies like Google, Facebook, Yahoo, take up more
of the Internet mediated communication.
Will you be masking posters’ e-mail addresses in the archives that you post?
Will you have a mechanism for posters or list owners to remove
archived messages if they wish?
For posters, most likely. For list maintainers, it’s a bit more involved
because we have to authenticate them somehow, but we will get that
done as well.
