I can only tell you what I do, and that is to ask the poster's permission if
I want to forward the entire message to a list.
In other cases, I might quote a tidbit from the PML hit message without
asking. For instance, if the hit is a lengthy list of marriages and only ONE
surname on the list is the one I would like to copy--I see no harm in copying
that ONE record and listing the source. Or if the hit is a GenConnect board
post I see nothing wrong with copying the URL of the post onto the list which
will allow the list members to go to the original board post to read it.
