making mboxes available


Can anyone think of any reason why we shouldn't publish the mbox files of
the list archives straight on the web?

Perhaps disclosing the alias to which the archives are delivered is not too
smart, it will be spammed.

In general, it would reveal much more material for the spambots to crawl
through. I'm not sure if this is good or bad: all those message-IDs will
make their databases even more useless, although it might get all those
people in Sender fields spammed.

I'm too tired to think of anything else. Comments welcome.

     2. That which causes joy or happiness.
