[freelists-users] Changing e-mail & spam problem

There are two issues I'd like to address. They were both brought up by one
of my list-members.

1) His e-mail address has changed and he had to unsubscribe to be able to
make the change. Isn't there a way to make this change from the settings
without actually unsubscribing?

2) I'll quote him on this one: "I noticed that since we moved to
[freelists.org], my spam load has increased dramatically.  Sure enough, I
typed my name into google, and it took me to the freelist archive page, with
all of our email addys." This came as a big surprise, of course, and I'm
quite concerned about this. I just double-checked to make sure, and I do
have the 'who-status' set to admin... doesn't this mean only I can
theoretically view the list of members?

BTW, I did try out what he said and typed in his name in "Google" and
indeed, a Freelists page shows up at the bottom of the first page of results
(with _my_ name, the top two results are Freelists pages!). It's a message
from the archives dated from October. While the e-mail addresses are taken
out in the headings, several messages are quoted and in these quotes some
e-mail addresses (including his own) are quite visible :-( Is there any way
to make these archives private too?
