It is clear that I have not mentioned a single email address of any
members of any LISTS. No one will get the electronic Siddharta
without personally asking for it.
The email addresses of the LISTS themselves are public, aren't they?
If it was an error on my part to make these known to persons mentioned
in my Cc, I sincerely apologise for this.
Thank you in any case for the caution you raised.
With best wishes,
