Free advertising supported services are not the only alternative to your
ISP.  I get my mail via Newsguy.  I pay them about $50/year for the
service and they do an excellent job.

Well, yeah, but if I could afford the JPY 5000 or so per year, I'd probably be paying dyn.com for the dynamic dns for mail and running my own mail server.

But what you're asking, if you want mail lists and newsgroups free from being trawled by search engines, is a level above the mail lists and newsgroups we have today. You'd have to have mail-list private addresses, and the list server would need to clean and re-write the headers of each post before posting either to the list or the published archives.

Be careful where you see conspiracy.
Look first in your own heart.
