Let me state for the record, I have absolutely no problems with my
messages being archived. Anyplace including hard copy on tp if that's
the format chosen.
OTOH, I had the (dis)pleasure of watching an idea of mine be used for
commercial gain without my permission. This was decades ago, long before
the copyright was made implicit. So I feel like I'm just being sure
everyone at AOL/TW/Yahoo understands that. They are the ones trying to
make hay by claiming to own the copyright for every message that passes
through their system. I believe we all should be wise to add that
disclaimer to our messages. But I don't preach it, I figure the reasons
for doing it are clear enough once you've read their T.O.S.'s.
I have whitelisted annarchy.freedesktop.org. along with several others
that vz has suddenly started filtering (btw, their excuse is that the
reverse dns lookup returned bogus into), but I believe I'm going to have
to resub to lkml using my gmail address.
Has this worked well for lkml'ers, or have either of you been noteing such
"There are four boxes to be used in defense of liberty:
soap, ballot, jury, and ammo. Please use in that order."
