I'm not sure what the moderators could do. It appears these people have 
collected the email addresses from the list, perhaps by subscribing to it, and 
have sent their emails directly to each of us. Short of abandoning the list for 
a web forum, there's no way to stop others doing that. (Unless the list can be 
configured not to include the sender's address, but that would remove a lot of 
the value of it.)

To Belinda's suggestion that they could email us through the list, I think the 
moderators might quickly put a stop to that.

But it's obvious that several of us have contacted them about this, and I 
assume they'll be more careful in future.

Ken,I dont want to start a major debate either - I'd rather get back to the 
birds? But I really dont think the incident should be ignored and I would value 
the moderator's view R? If we encourage anyone with a possible interest via a 
worthy cause or associated product to use this group for marketing, it will be 
overwhelmed, lose it's purpose and die. The action, no matter how worthy the 
cause, is simply unacceptable in my view and endangers the great value of this 
community. (I do like the beaut new euphamism "crowdfunding" though - I'll 
store that one).Graeme
