I would generally agree, and I would bet that the person who sent them to me
would generally agree too. It's a closed list for a reason -- so that only
people who have permission to view those messages may do so.

I have such permission. Dave has said that he would put me on the list if
I want to be there, so I have a right to view those messages; the fact that
I get those messages second-hand does not change the legitimacy of my
accessing them. The person who forwarded them to me did nothing wrong.

As I said, I stand by my earlier comments; your message may be important,
but how you are choosing to get it across is interfering with its reception.
If you truly care as much about people paying attention as you have
repeatedly claimed, then I would think that you would welcome -- and utilize
-- any suggestions on how to make people *more* willing to listen to it.

Perhaps you are listening to all the feedback... but so far, I've seen very
little of it put to use.
