My list subscribers are not my coworkers either. Please tell me when
and how, exactly, I somehow gained an obligation to protect their life,
whatever that might mean to you?
In my opinion, my obligation only extends as far as my duties as a list
manager. It's not my job to play judge, and decide if someone's made
a death threat against someone else; it's not my job to play psychologist
and try to discern someone's sanity level via email. It's only my job
to keep the list functioning, and in most cases, that's not even my
_job_, it's my hobby, and I could dump the damn list any time it gets
to be too much work for me.
How exactly is my mailing list like a manager-employee situation again?
