No Im not saying you do anything about it at all :)  I have already emailed
one of the lists about doing this and after some discussion here if more
people agree with me and would like to see some precautions taken then it
gives my emails a little weight to the webmasters of these archive lists.
Plus if others feel strongly about it they donšt have to just voice their
opinion they could also email the lists.

So no worries Rasmus, it's just a poll of sorts.  Also something to help
people become more aware of email harvesters and to do something about it to
protect their email addresses when using these mailing lists.
