locked Re: Email address obscuring


Hi Marlin,
My thought is that single messages and digests could contain links to the web site to make it possible for replies to be sent to the posting member via the system – without exposing the original posting member’s address.  This would offer wonderful protection from spammers, bots, viruses, scams, hacks, harvesters...
Hi Steph,
Owners already have the Option as to whether the membership list is available to the ‘owner-only’ or to the ‘owner and moderators’.   That’s as it should be.

Well, I thought about asking you that, privately, off of the group, but decided to send my message to the group instead.

If your address was obscured, that choice would be taken away from me.

On the other hand, I do see and sympathize with your opinion.

Yes, Marlin, I would want it obscured everywhere, if possible.
Thanks for asking,

Linda, I can see your address at the top of the message you just sent.

Would you want it to be obscured there as well?

Just asking/

Hi Mark,
I say Obscure, Obscure, Obscure! – every which way you possibly can.  I can’t think of any reason not to protect subscribers’ email addresses in groups with hidden membership lists.  That’s what hidden means.
