Jon Carnes explained:
There are a couple, but none of them work great. I have used a small 4
line script to hide the addresses in some archives.
IMO, the best method is to allow concerned users to sign up on a private
list to have their email addresses expunged from the archives (and
provide the alternative they want). Then you simply grep through the
archives directory for their exact email address and replace that with
the alternative. The "sed" command will do the job nicely
I was afraid you would say that. I have found a temporary solution which is to
tell people that as a matter of policy I will not edit archives but they can
solve their problem by:
a) doing software development necessary to make a publishable patch to the
archiver. They or their designated agent write the code and test it, I will
verify testing and advocate inclusion of the patch in the project.
b) take over some of my open source development work (camram) and I will do the
archiver modifications for them.
funny how I never hear anything back... ;-)
