1) Anybody who wants the full story of any discussion can go to google and get
it, it's not like they disappear into the ether.
2) For something like the archive, you would need to get the permission of
*every other person who posts* to incorporate their material, since all public
messages are the copyrighted property of the person who posted them (not many
know this part of internet law) and may not be used without permission in any
other forum or venue.
Which is why my sig reads the way it does.
The jmsnews people are following the law, nothing more or less.
