AMSAT-BB archives

It's also been a decision to archive the emails sent via the reflector on amsat.org, which also gets email addresses into the public record.

The amsat-bb archive strips the domain name from every sender's email address.  Consequently, robots cannot mine email addresses from the amsat-bb archive.  On the amsat-bb archive, the sender's address is merely "name@xxxxxxxxxx".

Once in a while somebody puts an email address in the body of a message.  But then it's not the archive's fault that that address is now public.

Many amsat-bb participants have aliases of callsign@amsat.org.  But some participants choose not to have this easily-guessed alias because they are concerned about privacy/spam.
