Youu only need to supply an account (make it as fictious as you want) to get
at the file section. Please do not read too much into Gil's characterization
of supplying personal information. Saying personal information on the
Internet makes it sound like social security and American Express cards
numbers are required. Nothing could be further from the truth. If you just
want email, that requires no personal information (real or otherwise). A
simple email to email@example.com (if such a list existed) is
all that is required.
I agree that it would be better for those that use contesting.com to support
it and only view Yahoo groups as a last resort.
