full name gets revealed, leaking private info
If a user is subscribed to a list by someone who puts their full name in the subscription field, then that full name is revealed to any other list subscription. This means that any other riseup list who subscribes that person's email address gets that person's full name. In most cases, only the administrator of that other list would be able to see this, but some list profiles allow list subscribers to see the list of people who are subscribed, which would enable them to get a hold of this person's full name.
A fix to this might be to make it so that we don't store the full name at all, or somehow isolate that so different lists don't have access to that information. Likely the first one is the easier, but pushing that change upstream would be useful so we dont have to maintain the change.
