Hrm, so basically "opt-out". What about "opt-in", instead: ask for
people who would specifically like their addresses posted on a
membership list. I don't think anyone would have a problem with that.

And I still don't see the use for such a list. The only thing I could
think of was if there's some website emergency, and folks need to whom
to contact directly. But that seems like it should already be handled
by webmaster at python.org. Maybe there's some real use-case for this I'm
not seeing?
