Based upon a previous message to the list, I hit their WEB site,
http://www.reference.com/. Looks fairly harmless, like DejaNews, except
that they cover mailing lists as well.
Does anyone have good/bad feelings about this? The list that
they tried to probe was closed, so the message bounced to the list
manager and postmaster, both being me. I have some lists that I do not
want "indexed". Others I don't really care, in fact it might breath
some new life into them. But I definately do not want any of my lists
to become SPAM targets, as I'm sure none of us do.
