     The RIGHTS you have on this list, are exactly the rights
I give you and none more.

     Although it is not said anywhere but shall be soon, no one has
the right sign on to this list in conceal mode.

     Frankly I had forgotten all about that ability on ADORE-L, which
is too bad because I don't want people using it.

     I merely saw Bill's signon letter come across to me and made my

     Frankly, signing on to ADORE-L in CONCEAL mode would have
made me even more suspicious but I would not have violated that
wish.  I would however have written the letter anyhow, just not
mentioned your name.

     I do not feel it is an invasion of privacy to inform
list members of who is on the list and who is off.

     For their security, they must know who is listening in
on their comments and who isn't.

     So list members, for future reference, considering the
nature of THIS list, how do you feel about people who sign on
in CONCEAL mode and what should I do about them?

     Post your answers to the list.
