Yes, it's a pain in the butt in terms of promulgating those brilliant and
stimulating early posts, but we absolutely will continue to abide by the
conditions agreed to two decades ago. I am NEVER going to set aside the
agreement of that time in favor of satisfying today's (perfectly natural)
desire to see the earliest posting to the older transhumanist email list
(and one of the very earliest email lists of all).

If the early archives are never generally available because of this, then so
be it. However, it may be that most of that early material might eventually
become available with the consent of the authors.

*** Writers from the early 1990s: If you agree to allow all of your postings
to the original Extropians email list to be publically available, please let
me (and the world -- or at least the Extropians-Chat email list) know.
