115% concur.  While there's the vulnerability to having people join who aren't "in the biz" & thus gain access, members-only does at least deter access by genpop.  There are too many things we say/talk about here that really should be just among us.  JM$.02W; YMMV.

I think the MLA list should be members only.



We need to have a place where we can discuss

matters of importance to us without them

popping up in a general search.



Many professional organizations do this.

I don't see why it would hurt to have it for members only. Membership is free and if someone wanted to read the archives then they could join. One of my pet peeves is having sales reps for different publishers contact me because they read that I was asking about their product. If I wanted to talk to someone at the publisher site I would contact them. But on the other side of the coin if we make it a private list then aren't we going against all that is holy in anti-censorship?  (And no I can never pick a side and stick to it! I'm an Aquarius for Pete's sake. LOL)

The archives are currently open, and frankly I appreciate that they are.  Would you see also locking that down?
