I thought they were all doing research projects. :-) :-)
Seriously, folks that think that e-mail of this sort is private, or
that there is any security in this, are really fooling themselves.
How do they know they can trust you? There is neither the cultural or
legal protections for e-mail that people assume for paper mail. I
highly doubt there is much legal protection for a mailing list.
