By cabalish I mean not closed lists with clear membership process as cultural partners is but the like of the paris group where you've got to be a part of a cabal in order to even know about it (or have cabal member mention it somewhere in front of you).

I'm sorry if some of the lists I listed were intended as cabalish and not to
be disclosed to others. I don't think cabalish lists are a good way to

"Cabalish" is rather a pejorative term. We have a closed GLAM list so
that we can have frank discussions without embarrassing our partner
organisations. if ether was no such list, then those discussions would
move to private emails, not become public.
