I see where various right-wing trolls, raised in pig-sties, are publishing the names of people on the JournoList website. Obviously, they’ve never heard of privacy, or for that matter decency: the list was conducted under ground rules that made it off the record, so every leak represents a breach of faith.
That said, having been left of Nixon’s enemies list, it seems to me to be my right to be listed in the distinguished company of JournoListers, since I was among the most frequent posters. And no, I’m not going to break the rules myself, but I will say – on oath if someone wants to be bothered – that the fantasy that a listserv constituted some sort of conspiracy to manage the news is complete hokum.
Other than endless discussions about music groups and sports teams I don’t care about, most of what was on JournoList was not collusion, but argument, sometimes heated. Precisely because the list was OTR, people could give their unvarnished opinions. On no reasonable theory is that an offensive activity, or one that deserved to be disrupted by the low-lifes who leaked some of the posts or the meta-low-lifes who published (very selectively, of course) some of those leaks.
