You can in fact leave comments on the site. I myself did so.

Subject: [NABOKV-L] EDNote: responses to Schneider's "review"
Date: Monday, January 12, 2009, 12:43 PM

I've received a number of postings responding to Schneider's "review" of Lolita.  I am not going to forward them, because it seems to me that the best place for such responses is on the blog site itself, if it accepts comments; I do not believe that Ms. Schneider is a NAB-L subscriber.  I think most readers here will agree that the review does not reflect a very careful or deep reading of Lolita, and its superficiality doesn't really earn it any attention on the list--unless we want to analyze it as a pop-culture reflection of Nabokov's art.  Remember, please, that many of these "submissions" are merely found things, out in the world--not statements made directly to this readership.  Our general policy is not to post expressions of disgust with or objection to the content of such found items.
