	Not necessarily.

	Actually, you can't find e-mail through search engines, and copyright
laws govern what one can do with other peope's messages.

	Well, that too. Actually, I have been arguing with the author of the
message in the list in which he originally posted. But I have been the
victim of having been quoted out of context in an area I had never
visited, been roundly torn apart, and, when I finally did show up, I
found a lynch mob waiting for me. I did not like it then, and I would
not like to see it happen to anybody else.
