Hello everybody

Hello everybody,

    I am new to the group. My first question is of administrative 
nature. I want to change the e-mail address with which I registered. 
There are 2 reasons for this:

1) All e-mails from the archive are unprotected. This is like inviting 
spammers for a feast. It is just a matter of time before robots will 
start to harvest all these addresses.
2) I created a dedicated e-mail address to handle issues with this group.

    I am not sure how to proceed. There are instructions on this web page:


but they don't answer all my questions. Precisely, in order to change my 
e-mail address I have to unsubscribe my e-mail address from this list, 
then send a subscribe request from my new address. Looks like anybody 
can do this. If that is the case, why did I have to get through all the 
initial procedures, like getting approvals, signing papers (for patent 
protection) a.s.o.


1. Can anybody subscribe to this list without any prior conditions ?
2. Is there any link between the e-mail used to create the w3.org 
account and the e-mail used in various mail lists ? Do they have to be 
the same ?

    Thank you for your attention.

Razvan M.
