Actually, the list has never been purchased by anyone. Len and I
started things off using our own hardware, and when Len retired last
year I solicited offers for hosting and support. Of the ~100 or so
offers I received, Secunia made the most sense from a financial and
technical point of view.
For the record, Secunia staff have no access to the FD server and I
continue to run it exclusively in an independant manner under a mutual
agreement with Secunia.
As far as the 'banner' text goes, I myself added that to reward
Secunia for their generous support, for which I am extremely grateful.
