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

Brian,

Yes, I agree that the community believes these things.

The problem is that a malicious actor could sign up for the list and
forward messages posted to it. The admins allow freemail users to
subscribe, so this is a credible attack vector.

While I trust the members of the community would not violate the spirit
of the list, unfortunately we cannot guard against malicious outsiders
while maintaining the open spirit that the list currently has.
