publishing the related mail alone would not help because you need to understand 
the legal background in order to understand the mail exchange.

As long as people in this list are not interested in understanding the legal 
background, there is no difference whether the mail is made public or not.

As Moglens recent and incorrect claims have already been made public, Moglen 
has no longer the right to keep the private mail exchange secret - it is the 
only way to proove that he is no longer correct. But I will nut publish the 
private mail exchange unless there is proof that I am giving this information 
to open minded people who understand the text in it's relevence.
