While I don't think what that site is doing is *good*, there really isn't
anything we can do about it. Sending an email falls under the same category
as sending a letter. When you send someone a letter, you give them the
copyright to that letter. If anyone owns the copyright to thelist it is
evolt.org as a whole. I don't think we can afford any frivolous lawsuits.

Anyway, it will be their own funeral. SEs are quickly identifying duplicated
content and demoting perpetrators.

Besides, their site is ugly, and throws JS errors.
