Being the offending party, I apologise.
For the record, the actual population of the britarch list is currently 1740
subscribers including 30 concealed subscribers. Any subscriber may obtain a
list of subscribers including email addresses (except for the 30 concealed
subscribers) by ending the command "review britarch" to [log in to unmask]
Those people at listserv should be hauled off in shackles.

>X's email address is personal data which should not be bandied around in
public. It's better, in a circumstance like this, to pass on the email

to contact, so that person can get in touch - or not, as they wish. A bad
second best is to give the email address out privately - but that's still
strictly contrary to the DPA.
