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

Regarding community standards, I think that it depends on context.  For
instance, when someone posts an event or a job listing to this list, I will
often forward it on under the assumption that people want it to be public,
but I typically don't forward on any discussions of security or particular
countries or current events under the assumptions that the people involved
would consider that private-ish.

Greg does bring up a good point regarding community standards versus
security, though.
