FWIW: I've added the following to a list rules message that is posted monthly.

"By posting to this mailing list, you are granting <name of organization> perpetual, non-exclusive, unlimited, and irrevocable, rights to the content."

I've had people, who thought the questions they asked on a list reflected poorly on them, try to 'revoke' my right to publish the content they had contributed.

I'm riding 615 miles (Yes, you read that right) in the American Diabetes Association's Tour de Cure to raise money for diabetes research, education, advocacy, and awareness.  You can make a tax deductible donation to my ride by visiting https://gmane.diabetessucks.net.

You can see where my donations come from by visiting my interactive donation map ... https://gmane.diabetessucks.net/map (it's a geeky thing).

I may have diabetes, but diabetes doesn't have me!
