In defense of Eldon, I should make it clear that US First Amendment law 
protects unmoderated mailing lists and their owners from most legal action 
which does not involve copyright and US courts will not enforce any foreign 
judgement that is in conflict with First Amendment law. This has been the 
practice particularly in response to attempts to use UK libel laws against 
postings originating in the US and in light of Reno v. Aclu (1998) which 
clearly extended the full range of First Amendment protection to the internet 
there is no chance of any such foreign judgement being recognized by the US

are in total violation of several European nations domestic laws)
