He was asked to either publish his public key, or stop signing his messages to the list. A reasonable request if he wants to be part of the com unity. He could even have posted an ASCII armored copy of his public key to the list. But he demanded that we send him an email asking for his key. This is being polite? Get real... But I guess asking anyone to be a good list member is not acceptable on this list any more. If you point out the list guidelines and ask that people follow them, you are labeled a NET NAZI. Politeness is sadly lacking from some members. It has the net affect of driving people away, or turning some of the more knowable people into lurkers. (jdow, for example.) Mikkel -- Washington DC’s low murder rate of 69 per 100,000 is due to strict gun control. Indianapolis’ high murder rate of 9 per 100,000 is due to the lack of gun control.
