If the email had just been fabricated and such had been specified then everyone would have been chortling away happily. I do think it's improved the quantity of contributions to drobe though which is always good. A more natural (/intuitive or whatever the word) policy on email would be anything is publishable unless otherwise specified but every effort will be made to contact the sender to let them know beforehand and allow them to add the "not to be published" tag afterwards. It's considered bad practice to publish private emails without permission on newsgroups and mailing lists, and with good reason. Anyway, back to work!
