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,

So far as I can determine from this thread, our colleague Jay Soni responded to the request not by distributing anyone's address, but merely by
forwarding the original message with the suggestion that we respond individually. His Netiquette thus seems to have been impeccable.
But thank you for the reminder.

The addresses of the members of the INDOLOGY forum are not public. It is, in any circumstances, a violation of internet Netiquette<http://indology.info/email/email-rfc-1855/> to distribute other people's email addresses.
While this Siddhartha translation will be interesting to many Sanskrit scholars, the forced distribution by wrongly shared email addresses is absolutely the wrong way to share the work. Most people will be angry that their email address has been given to a distributor without their permission, and correspondingly unhappy to receive this work. It will create the opposite of the intended impression.
I would ask all members of the INDOLOGY list to remember that it is a violation of the list's terms to distribute other members' email addresses.
