List of email addresses

Considering the CoC, I'm refraining myself from talking too much about a 
certain individual.

As there seems to be some confusion as to how Daniel Pocock was able to access 
the subscriber emails of this list:

The list is visible to all subscribers here:

Having list membership visible to all subscribers is common practice, and 
virtually all public mailing list are configured to show this information on 
request. After all, the mailing list archive is also available, and by 
scraping the mailing list archive one would be able to gather a similar list…

However, I'm pretty sure that using this information in the way that Mr. 
Pocock did is very much not allowed under EU law. Maybe it's time to let the 
legal team handle this transgression and evaluate FSFE's legal options?
