Yup, but do they? Some do, some don't. I would much prefer to be dependent
on a listserve rather than a person to have my address filtered out of the
archives. I'm surprised you guys don't think this is a problem--why, then,
would Yahoo Groups, FreeLists and more do it? If there's no way that having
Email addresses display in full on a list's archive page could lead to
abuse, why do these large companies employ this technique? Think about
it...
