And if you don't feel like sharing your Gmail address with the list,
you can always tell Gmail to send messages with a different address in
the "To:" line. That's what I do with my Penn address (though as I
might have mentioned, the downside is that it takes about 10 minutes
for the listserv to decide to post messages sent that way).
