Re: 1/3d "Concealed"?

  Possibly spam avoidance.  Spammers often mine discussion group lists to
  develop lists of email addresses.  I subscribe to two lists whose
  listservers do not permit subscribers to uncover the names and email
  addresses of subscribers for just this reason.  Since posters reveal
  themselves, this only protects lurkers.
