I presume the "we" is you, i wonder how realistic it is to prohibit one
from sending a mail from his/her box to whoever he wants. I am not talking
about cross posting within 1Net only. I am talking about scenario where
"read-only" users uses the very critical information but yet un-official as
a forward to other list. You may say those information are public anyway,
but there is a difference between receiving an information to actually
referencing a public url.

Yes i agree it isn't[1]. In any case, i just think the gap should exist
between the SC and Discuss so the sense of responsibility from SC to
discuss list is maintained.

1. The moderated messages from receive only user can also be discarded by
default with SC members as an exception.
