Is this not a public list?

I think I have worked who/what sparked off this decision to introduce a CofC - 
the reason I wasn't previously aware is because the person I now think has 
triggered this action has been on my "delete any email from / to / about this 
person" for some years, due to unpleasant interactions I have seen or been 
part of, on too many other lists.

I can certainly say that this person does not in the least bit hold back from 
expressing their opinions in public and having them archived for the Internet 
to read, so I don't see how switching anything to a more public forum (and I 
still question, is this list not already public enough?) would make any useful
