[liberationtech] Outside of the list/listmembers is Libtech basically private, or basically public? WAS - Re: Urgent question

I believe we have also agreed, generally, as a community, that the content
here should not be shared broadly outside the list, or consider "on the
record" unless you request the consent of the initial poster. I hope others
will state whether they think this is the case, or not?

I know that the community is "online" and so "not secure" but i believe it
should be considered "private to the community" as a matter of courtesy.

I hope others will jump in with their thoughts as well!
