Am I correct in assuming that ADS-L should *not* be so archived?

From here, "No!" would indeed seem to be the proper response.

Thank you for asking.

I have checked this web site, rummaged around in it a bit. It seems totally

legitimate and a valuable addition to search engines for the Internet. I would

think that a true scholar would applaud an effort that makes information more

readily available. I simply cannot understand why one would _assume_ that

ADS-L members should *not* associate themselves with the dissemination of

their knowledge and information or why "No!" would be a proper response.

Is it possible that the academics on this erudite list, who disdain lowly

outsiders who are not paid acolytes of the language biz, would be embarrassed

by endless debate on the soda vs. pop issue or where barefoot-and-pregnant
