It appears you're missing the context - sorry, I should have been more  
explicit since this is not the AC list.

People were using the mailing list as a source of email addresses, and  
sending unsolicited private email to people who didn't know them. That  
generated the complaints.

No, of course not. As you point out, that would be stupid.
