Re[2]: 1/3d "Concealed"?

  Prof. Ward
  So does spamming increase the incremental cost is the initial participation 
  and the decrease the output and (network) value of the list?  If so is this 
  an external cost of spamming?

  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.
