I believe you could argue academia.edu exists for this purpose. Also, many
publishers have begun to include self-archiving as an explicitly permitted
activity (using the pre-press, pre-edited copy only), and in my experience
OUP now includes this in their contracts for journal content after an
embargo period (one year).
That said, other publishers actively pursue legal action against their own
authors who self-archive, and I've also seen contracts for periodicals that
expressly prohibit it or require copyright be assigned to the publisher.
But I think I'll go back to lurking on the listserv now...
