Even being on the list ... it's a pain. Because to access the list archives I have to remember my "list password", which is some randomly generated string, which I never do so I always have to have it emailed to me (I might be able to change it, but clearly it's stored in plaintext because it always gets emailed back to me, so I don't want to make it something I remember). I mean, I don't get it ... why not make them public? I'm on a number of closed lists that require manual approval to join, but the archives are still public. --Ken -- nmh-workers https://lists.nongnu.org/mailman/listinfo/nmh-workers
