My opinion about cross-posting:

If you send something e-mail to a friend's address directly,
that person should consider it private mail and not repeat
it without permission.

However, if you post something to a public list (such as
techwr-l, which has over 400 readers), then you should
consider your words public. The person who cross-posts
should, as a courtesy, acknowledge the originator of the

This is just my opinion. The courts are already seeing
cases about private e-mail that became public (through a
hacker) then was published and whether the originator has
privacy rights when using e-mail to convey a message.
