E-M:/ DON'T POST STRATEGIC INFORMATION TO ENVIRO-MICH

IMPORTANT!!   EM IS NOT FOR CRITICAL, STRATEGIC INFORMATION

Once again I'd like to remind every environmental activist
on the EM list not to post strategic information to the
Enviro-Mich list.

I recently received information from some of my
Washington DC contacts that some draft, policy formation
materials that should not have been publicly posted by a list participant
were conveyed to the Edison Electric Institute by some
of the industry lurkers on this list.

EM is run as a public email list, which means that anyone can
sign up for the list.   This means that industry opponents
consider EM a source of information and the smart ones are all lurking
here or use the site archive.   All of Michigan electric utilities track 
this list.  Dow Chemical
is here.  There are at least 5-6 lawyers from the industry law firm,
Honigman, Miller, etc. etc. here on the list.

EM is for distribution of information intended for public consumption
and widespread public dissemination.   It is NOT for posting
critical, environmental activist insider information, unless you
deliberately want to tip off the opposition.

Please be smart when it comes to safeguarding critical strategic
information by NOT posting it here.   Your failure to be careful
jeopardizes your objectives and the objectives of other volunteers
and staff members trying to protect the environment.
