Whatever the alleged justification, the posting of a private message
without permission of the sender is a serious breach of netiquette; for
that matter, even a post to a list should not be forwarded to another group
without seeking permission of the original poster. Inasmuch as B-Greek is
an unmoderated List, we apparently have no way of protecting ourselves, but
it is abundantly evident that the List is being abused by non-subscribers.
I earnestly hope that this abuse may cease.
