This little item appeared in my mailbox over the weekend.  It seems
that this fellow is publishing, essentially, the "Publicly Accessible
Mailing Lists" document (and, probably, its BITNET counterpart).  His
editing of my entry missed the point completely in several respects,
and I found the entire thing distasteful.  In addition, I don't really
like the fact that he's apparently going to publish all the posting
addresses; I think that the vast majority of list managers would pre-
fer to tell subscribers ourselves, via the MLM or human interface, 
during the subscription process.  I have too many nonsubscribers posting 
dreck to the list *now*; I shudder to think what will happen when this 
book comes out.......
