Call me a libertarian...  but I'm just old fashioned and think that the
fewer rules and laws there are to this list, the lesser chances of them
being broken.

Besides, it really should be upto the poster what license her posts are
going to be licensed under.  The governors of the mailing list SHOULD NOT
force any license on the posters.


That, sadly, has been the argument used by both far right and far left
governments (read 'dictators').
