So, if there's no law against publishing a list of mailing lists there's no
problem? Which rights are being infringed? The right of someone to publish
_information_ or someone who wants to keep a mailing list a secret? Hey,
if you want to keep a mailing list a secret, peachy. Just try asking the
people who are publishing the information if they'll exclude your list. I
just don't think you're going to have any luck enforcing your request.
