    NO  IT DOES NOT. You can sign up for the list the same way you sign up for
    any other  list. Details here: www.fer3.com/NavList
    If you want access to the web  interface, then you need to think up a
    password. No other "registration" is  required.
    "3. Google list has advertising and our list does  not."
    NO. Only the web interface has advertising. It is highly specific  and barely
    noticeable. The list itself does not have advertising.
    "4. No  one knows what will Google do with the info you tell him
    at the registration;  it may sell it, for example to those who send
    spam. It is true, webkahuna  might make this too. But SO FAR it did not,
    and the webkahuna list is already  10 years olf, btw."
    Maybe you took a wrong turn somewhere, but the only  information you really
    have to give them is an e-mail address. The idea that  google might sell your
    e-mail address to spammers is wildly absurd. Spam lists  are primarily
    generated simply by searching web pages for anything with the  format of an e-mail
    address (string at-sign string). If your e-mail address is  on a web site, then
    you will eventually become a spam target. I notice, Alex,  that your e-mail
    address is on dozens of web sites.
