Really? Are there *any* list-manager who don't think that it is the
duty of every responsible subscriber to fully read and follow list
requirements that are emailed to new subscribers?
If so, could such list-managers please send me the subscribe address
to your list? I'd like to join and do with your list as I like,
without being bound by your rules. Oh, and if you put a
X-michelle-don't-bother-me header, I'll leave you alone. I just don't
want to have to actually read your list rules.
Is there really no near consensus that all subscribers are expected to
read and follow list rules of the mailing list they join of their own
There is no consenus that offering archive services is good or bad
(personally, I think it is good), but I suspect there is near
consensus that all subscribers are expected to read and follow list
terms and conditions. I also think that their individual message
header opting out is good (if I wanted my list archived, I'd want this
feature so my list members could choose as well), but it is totally
irresponsible to join a list and use it without actually reading the
list rules. I don't care what kind of subscriber you are or what your
intentions are. *ALL* subscribers are expected to read my list rules.
