To be fair, quite a few people said they thought it was fine / a good 
thing. A couple (maybe 3?) said that as the list was originally 
advertised with the member list hidden it would be unfair to change. So 
based on responses, more people think it *is* acceptable.

So long as we give notice for the change, so that anyone who doesn't 
want their name associated with the list can unsubscribe, I don't see 
why there should be a problem.

All the best,
