As I'm guilty of posting the DC version of the quotes
list (which DID find it's way to FunSec after all) I
feel I should add my thoughts.
I have to agree with X. This list produces some very
fine posts which many, if not all us at some point,
have gained from. To make this list modded would end
the freedom of speech (as such) that we have enjoyed
We should agree on a format to distinguish between
genuine FD posts and those that are off-topic. Again
so that people can filter as they please.
I'm in favour of the standard-ish [OT] tag which is
used in many other lists that I'm a member of. If you
feel that an [OT] post would not suit FD per se, then
mail me direct and I'll give you FunSec's address and
you can post it there, therefore cutting that
particular part of the 'noise' out.
