[liberationtech] Liberationtech Mailing List Survey

I'm entirely neutral on all three questions: I post rarely, but when I do I write on the assumption that my posts are effectively public.

Just a reminder about the survey.  To ensure getting as many responses as possible, the survey will continue until Monday, August 20, 2012.

Hi All,

Based on your feedback, a short 3-question survey of the Liberationtech community will be conducted to determine what changes to implement.  The survey will be conducted through Thursday, August 16, 2012, and aggregated survey results will be released on Friday, August 17, 2012.  Changes to mailing list guidelines will occur shortly thereafter.

To provide background info on the survey questions, the feedback you have sent either privately or to the whole list over the past few days has been summarized below under "policy implications."

Should you have any questions, please let me know.


List Moderator


  *   Would you like to make the Liberationtech archives public or private?
     *   Public
     *   Private
  *   Should reply-to's be sent to the entire list or the individual sender?
     *   Entire List
     *   Individual Sender
  *   Should we reduce or eliminate the list-email signature text?
     *   Keep text signature as is
     *   Add  "-- " prior to text signature to enable auto-hiding in most mailers
     *   Eliminate text signature completely


  *   Public or private:
     *   Public implies making the archives public both within mailman, and we would also allow automatic, real-time mirroring of the list.  Easiest to do for simplicity and transparency's sake.  Mailing list guidelines would also be amended to reflect the change.
     *   Private means that we would make the archives private and, if possible, add Internet standard email headers or robot exclusions to restrict or prohibit archiving.  Mailing list guidelines would also be amended to reflect the change.
  *   Reply to entire list or individual sender:
     *   Advantage of replying to individual sender includes preventing personal replies from being inadvertently sent to the entire list.
     *   Advantages of replying to entire list include:
        *   Preventing people who forward emails from the list from unnecessarily exposing subscribers' email addresses
        *   Preventing list server from having to filter email to subscribers who are in To: or Cc: (if anything goes wrong, they get an email twice)
        *   Reducing both the strain on the server and the risk of triggering spam filters
  *   Signature
     *   Signature currently includes instructions on how to change subscription options (an issue that constantly recurs on the list) and our Twitter address.  See below:
