RE: member guide



Louie,

This is precisely the attitude that caused the Board to vote to keep the
list private.  They didn't want to loose members over this issue.

Keep in mind that the Board is not even considering changing the policy.
Everyone here is simply debating an issue that most of the Board and
Officers are completely unaware of.

That said, I reiterate that I like the idea of releasing the membership
list, in principle. After all, your membership in the Ham community is
already a public list published by the FCC and available on the FCC, QRZ,
Buck, ARRL and other Web sites. They even publish your birth date! I would
suggest that if this were ever done that participation be on an opt-in basis
only and that e-mail addresses not be listed.  That way spammers can't get
your e-mail but the rest of us know that call@amsat.org will probably work.

Note to BoD:  If I have to opt-out of having any of my personal information
from being published, then it will be much easier to opt-out of sending in
the check for renewal.
