That's what were discussing, the situation today - so in this case history is irrelevantThat was a joke, hence the emoticon, but IMHO history is seldom if ever irrelevant.
I don't think a placebo achieves much in this case except to destroy a few more trees by needlessly printing the lists. What's the speed bump you refer to - taking a few screen shots off Press Reader? Hardly worth putting up a token wallI agree with you personally, BUT the main reason companies use Press Reader vs. other solutions that give you greater access to the source files is because it forces you into screenshots in order to get electronic copies or work around the expirations they set. Crystal already bought that scenario as a solution once, I think it's feasible they could see Press Reader of value for similar reasons for the guest list.
If people really want to digitise it all they need to do is scan the printed version and run OCR on it - that's hardly going to stop someone with nefarious intent
