So here's the total tally:

1. Make list public or keep pseudo-private?
a. Public 71%
b. Pseudo-Private 29%

2. Reply to list or sender?
a. List 69%
b. Sender 31%

3. Eliminate signature, modify, or leave as is?
a. Eliminate 20.7%
b. Modify 62.1%
c. As is 17.2%

I'll work on revising the guidelines/signature and implementing the desired
changes soon.

In the meantime, if you have any other concerns or requests, please let me
know.
