Not can. Not look. Just store, forever.

Of course also the mailing list, but a mailing list isn't a place
where you smalltalk, speak about food, world view, relationships
and where to go out tonight. Even if you use side channels or /msg,
it all ends up in the big tank unless you employ plenty of OTR.

OTOH I understand that Torproject has no perspective of anything
being private any longer, so Andreas has a point. Torproject is a
target, not a victim of bulk surveillance.
