Let me clarify what I meant when I referred to "outing"- this was a poor
choice of words and I did not mean to imply that people needed to be active
participants on the flownet. I simply
meant that I have over 100 email addresses of our mutual colleagues and
wondered if they should be in the "public domain". I certainly do not
want to discourage subscribers by making them feel exposed in anyway.
I will refrain from publishing the list.
