Don't communicate with anyone...
Put a little permissions thingie at the bottom of your emails...
Put a big message up top: DON'T SEND ME ANY EMAIL UNLESS YOU WANT THE
WHOLE WIDE WORLD TO SEE IT.
Basically, you're going to drastically reduce the number of people
who communicate with you--or at least the number who truly speak
their minds. You're going to get self-edited communications, at best.
Why not just ask, for each thing you wish to pass along: Do you mind
if I pass this [paste snippet here] along to [whomever] with/without
your name attached?
