First, I don't use MS for much, one out of 15 'puters we have are
MS. All others are apple OSX (main boxes), apple os9, opensuse 10.*,
freenas, and a few other Linux flavors along with a few bsd test boxes.
(like, my email domain didn't tell you?!)
I've been on many, many other lists and the host company keeps the
addresses hidden. Why can't redhat do the same?
Go to the suse or apple archives (or other linux flavors) and you
can't see email addresses, so no email addresses get harvested.
I'm one at least 8 other lists, this list is the most... open(?), by
far. But on my part, my bad. I shouldn't have assumed...
As for your attitude, Yes, it was a bad idea to use a normal address
for a list that has such an ass like you on it.
What is wrong, can't you figure out how to make simple html links
correctly in your own website?
... never mind, forget it.
