You did say that and I just didn't check it out. Is there any reason
to not let them do this? My sponsoring organization is involved in a
lot of public education kinds of things, and want to get the word
out. Is there a negative, or spam risk, or something to letting them
archive? And ... finally, why do they need multiple subscribes to
the same list?
Sorry if I am asking to many questions -- I know you aren't their
representative or defender.
