It doesn't seem quite right to me, giving out an email address without permission from the person in question (kind of like attacking the Yellow Jersey when he suffers a mechanical issue on a crucial climb). :)

However, a quick reminder to the populous here, that it's very easy to find the email address of people who post to the CR list or any other Bikelist.org group that shows in the archives.

Go to the archives: http://search.bikelist.org/

Then in the "Search String" box, type in the first and last name of the person whose email address you seek. Type it as that person would type it in their proper sign-off. In this case ... Steven Maasland. Then, hit "search". You will find results that have that person's name, as it is written ... in this case, 3271 results! Some of the postings will be other people referring to said person, but many will also be posts by the person you seek. Why? ... because we must all sign off with our first and last names ... thus showing in the results. Scan down the list of results, looking for the name of the poster of each, until you find your target member ... in this case, result number 2. If the email address isn't apparent in the results page (as it is here), then simply click on that post, and look for the email address it came from.

*** Important note *** Remember that the archives system replaces the @ ... the at symbol ... with (AT), to keep automated spam programs from succeeding Copy and paste the email address into the "Send To" box in your email browser, and replace the (AT) with the correct symbol. You just found an email address on your own ... and no one has to even know you were looking. Pretty nifty stealth operation, eh?
