Hi Dot,

So, these two things would help a lot:

1.  encourage people to use "Blind Copy" always

    Comment:  this takes voluntary participation

2.  modify list servers to suppress the sender's  
    email address in messages which are broadcast
    to the list, by default;  this can be overriden
    at the user's option

    Comment:  this takes a coding change in the 
    list server software

Let me know what you think, after you have thought
about it for a while.
