The problem is not only for addresses of posters and those on cc list,
at least mailman tries to obscure these (or the setting below).
The main issue I think is when an email address appears in the body of a
message. This can happen a number of ways (intentionally or
unintentionally), for example when a message is forwarded.
For what it is worth, I think we should have an all or nothing policy.
People should be aware that this is a public site with (mostly) public
lists. Sure, some visitors/posters may not be aware of this, but we can
take a few steps to make it more obvious.
