I can understand your reluctance to talk about certain things in a forum of
undetermined composition, but the purpose of this mailing list, at least for the
next few days, is to circulate as much factual information as possible without
adding to overall risk.  I've got a couple hundred names on the list now, a few of
which are local aliases for "postmaster" or "phage" -- if I had to explode them all
our poor mailer (and postmaster) would explode.

I hope this list will be unneeded in a few days.  The regular security lists
should be sufficient to talk about security issues -- I don't intend to
administer a closed security mailing list -- I don't have the time or energy.
