>> SURVEY:
>>
>> 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
>>
>> POLICY IMPLICATIONS:
>>
>> 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:
