This does bring up a good question - can a list hosted by a governmental
entity (a state university) really be considered private property?
After all, public funds are being used to run the list........
Someone said the First Ammendment doesn't apply unless you are 'the
state.' Well, apparently in this case, 'the state' owns the server.
Looks like the best bet would be to contract with a private company to
host the list and pay all costs out of your own pocket.....
Oh, yeah, one more thing..... I am not a lawyer............
