IMHO, this is definitely on topic for a list managers mailing list.
I would certainly object to someone else making profit from a list
which I host, free of charge, as a community service. Anyone who
wants to keep their mailing list private and free from commercial
influences has my support. Why should an outsider benefit financially
from the efforts of a a list admin and his/her subscribers? Sorry.
You get no sympathy from me on this whatsoever. Wanna make a buck on
mailing lists? Open your own lists. Leave my list and my subscribers
the alone. We can get along just fine without any money changing
