No, but it was unrealistic. I don't count too heavily on the privacy of
private email, and as for stuff posted to a mailing list or newsgroup --
netiquette notwithstanding -- you can consider that completely public.
You own the copyright to everything you post, but that doesn't mean it might
not find its way around the world, regardless of your permission. ...RM
