most of you seem that you did not read the "we will send them an

notification, the Member will be 'retired' and be considered a 'Member
emeritus" part.

I can't talk for "most of us" but I did read it. However, it doesn't
change anything. I still believe what I wrote in the previous mail: that
completely disabling the address would be unnecessarily rude - not to
the member getting retired but to anyone else. Whatever the reasons the
member getting retired would have not to respond to your e-mail.

Did you consider for a moment the possibility that someone might realize
he's not really an active member anymore, say "fair enough" and ignore
the e-mail exactly for the reason he agrees he shouldn't be recognized
as a member - all that without realizing that it would cut anyone who
finds the address somewhere from contacting him? And that
even if he does realize that, he would have a moral dilemma either to
pretend to be an active member (even if he is fully aware he is not) or
to make the address completely dead?

But do as you wish. After all, I'm not a member and, frankly, I wouldn't
even want to become one.
