Dear All,

I don't think it is a good practice to give other peoples contacts on B-A just because someone makes a request for it on the list, particularly if the person requesting is not a regular to the list. I believe it is a gross breach of a persons privacy and "netiquette" to do it. The correct thing to do would be to forward the email to the person being asked about if you think you know them and let them decide if they want to be in contact with the enquirer.

Some people can get very touchy about this sort of thing and have been known to exact very interesting retribution.
