Each one of my accounts is completely different (and as random as I can
get them). Each one is also uniquely set to match a set of criteria of
my own choosing to indicate level of data, level of composite data,
level of integrity, level of criticality, and a few other 'soft values'.
This equates to each account being generated in a one-off fashion, so
I'm not worried that my list account here will ever show up somewhere
else in any other form. However, that doesn't mean that it doesn't
concern me that the list is publishing these values back to the list
participant(s) in plaintext. If I have to unsubscribe and then
re-subscribe without a pass-phrase I can do that but just wanted to make
the list admin(s) aware that it had occurred.
