a thought about the Mailing list archives

I got to thinking — we have a vibrant mailing list here at downtempo.chron, complete with archives that go back to July 2003. I can’t tell you how many great new artists I got turned on to by that very same list, why not share it with the world.

But before I do that, I thought it would be worth asking *you* the mailing list (and web) community if you thought that *we* should open those archives up for public perusal.

What do you think? send us some feedback by way of comments

  1. I’m cool with it except I’ve included my email in .sigs in a number of messages, comfortable with doing that in the cozy protected environment of the subscriber den. If those could be scrubbed out and the same thing for the header/sender info, I’d be fine with it. Otherwise, those addresses will be scraped and made spambait in no time flat, it would seem

  2. Chauncey:

    As you currently are a member of the list, you can view what the archives will look like. Just go here, login w/your username/password, and check ’em out.

    The posts should be fairly well scrubbed already, and I most certainly understand your concerns about getting more spam, something I definitely don’t want to have happened.

    If things look ok to you let me know, and if they don’t I’ll see if I can work with tech support to get things further scrubbed.
