Nope; just making a plea for folks to voluntarily put in signatures of some sort.

I'm allowed to have my opinions, as is (I presume) anyone on the list.  My opinion, in this case, is that a way should be found to include some form of identification, without revealing the sender's email address.  That said, I'm not the list administrator, so I don't have (or want) any control in this matter.
