I don't understand why someone would want an e-mail list of subscribers.
That's why we have the BB'd. If someone wants to post a message to the
subscribers then just post it to the bbd.
Also, any list of subscribers may not be valid for very long if new
folks subscribe and others un-subscribe.
We get enough junk e-mail so do we really need private, junk e-mail.
All that said, I could care less if my e-mail address is given out.
It's really easy to delete unwanted messages.
