For the same reason I don't publish personal emails to me: I respect
others' privacy. I believe it's their decision to make, not mine.

I don't believe anyone has said they are only willing to participate
in the -admin list secretly. But a few haven't said anything at all,
I assume because they're busy people. I expect they'll be happy to
add their names to the public registry when they get around to
checking their email relating to the volunteer position. Or maybe
they'll see you've been calling them "secret police" with a
connotation  that they would take someone away in the middle of
the night to be murdered, and decide it was a mistake volunteering in
the first place. Either way, give it a little time and I expect the
published list will soon reflect everyone on the list.
