    We disagree. Dean Snyder has started an ad-hoc private discussion
    list on the subject of Phoenician. People on his distribution list
    who choose to opt-out should do so privately.

    Responding to a private post on a public list is considered ill-mannered.

    Spam is generally taken to mean unwanted *commercial* e-mail. Dean's
    private posting, whatever else it might be, wasn't commercial.

    Best regards,
