Not sure I share this view or maybe I misunderstand. I think that
editorial privileges should be restricted to the working group, but
being a public project and having the philosophical ideals around
intellectual property that I do, I would really prefer that everything
we do and say at least be readable by the public. I would actually
prefer that the archives of this list be readable by the public but
not strongly enough than I need to do more than express my preference.

I think this should eventually be part of the permanent dataset as

Are you volunteering? ;-)

I have a similar problem with them. My guess is that Stephanie writes
her sythesis in Word (on a Mac?) and pastes them into a webmail text
box. I'm able to work around it ok. Stephanie, no rush, but you
should consider using a non-webmail email client such as Mozilla
Thunderbird (if your running OS X), which you will thank yourself for
over and over later as it will solve all your email travails.
