As of tonight, the WWW list of members of the list will disappear and
it will no longer be possible for non-members to Email the mailbase
server and get a list of the members of the list either.

Members will lose the convenient WWW listing but will still be able
to get a list of members by Email. To do this:

a) send the message to (_NOT_ to the list!)
b) the message has to say:
review pcp

you will then get a list of all the members by Email by return.

Malcolm and I decided on this change on the advice of the mailbase
team that the public access to the list makes it easier for people to
use the list of names to build "spamming" lists of addresses.

Hope this is O.K. with you all (or at least, a large majority!)
