It's a moderated conference, but I wouldn't call it closed as membership is
open to anyone, although an interest in marketing through new media helps.

retain copyright, you're allowing free distribution of your email by
posting it in a public forum. I suppose I should add the legal-ese version
of this to the welcome message (although I doubt it would be that
welcoming!), but I wanted to avoid the legal gobbledegook. I can add it if
there's a strong feeling...

Of course, it's good form and polite to seek a poster's permission before
forwarding on something they have written, this also goes for making sure
that when quoting someone's email you attribute it to the correct author.
