[liberationtech] archives public

Any list is effectively public.

I'd bet hard cash that any list like LibTech has at least one person
siphoning off posts to some database.

As Benjamin Franklin said "Three can keep a secret - if two of them are
dead"


It's a sad state, but it is good opsec to assume anything sent to a
large group like LibTech is effectively public.

Not making a value judgement - I am no fan of the "transparent society".
But I'm also a realist.
