Hi Eugene. I assume access to the papers is password protected indicates
that whoever lets you post their papers on the website might not
like to have paper generally accessible. That will pass as a gloss
for what I meant by people's sensitivities. XMCA paper archive is open,
perhaps because people were simply asked permission to make papers available
for discussion. Perhaps the proper thing to do would be to make it password
protected. I'll have to review that.

As a contrary case, check Robert Siegler on google and follow that entries
to his web page where everything is open including a huge number of
copyrighted papers of his. I wonder how that is possible.

If there is an appropriate way to let each others readers know about
accessible interesting papers, great. If not, same ole same ole.
PS- Readers AND writers, of course!
