Please be advised that the Attorney General has ruled that
communication via electronic mail in the public domain
is not confidential and is considered a matter of public record.
This means that while I may bother someone by posting a copy of their message sent to a listserv on my blog, I am not doing anything illegal, i.e. it is within my rights to do so. I always want to respect people’s wishes regarding this and I do not identify the author of the posts I riff on in my blog. Should someone want not to be quoted in my blog or actually want their names attached to their post, let me know.
I’ll see if I can get this set up on the blog so that whenever anyone logs on, they see it.
