Yet you wilfully and knowingly posted it to a public-access mailing
list with tens of thousands of subscribers and that is well-known to be
archived in many places across the net?
You must be a prize moron...

...who can't afford a lawyer with half a clue, and will now never be
able to meaningfully defend any kind of accidental Email-borne
"disclosure" of anything, as you've just admitted, on the public
record, that you are too stupid to tell if something is privileged or
legally exempt from disclosure, THUS your only legally defensible
position regarding such material in future is to ensure that you never
handle any of it, but as (by your own admission) you cannot tell what
that it is, you must cut yourself off from all information, a clearly
impossible task. In short, you've put yourself in the paradoxical
position of being both knowingly and negligently responsible for any
and all "improper" disclosures of any and all "sensitive" material you
should ever happen across in future.
Good luck ever getting hired again -- it would take a seriously stupid
employer to take on such a liability as you!

As you say it _is_ confidential and I have NO existing relevant
"relationship" with you, I MUST have received this by mistake....
> ... please let us know by e-mail ...
...and I have a good faith belief that the mailing list software will
deliver this is to you by Email, so I've fulfilled that part of the
"deal". But what about the rest of the F-D subscribers? You'll get a
_LOT_ of Email...

Although I wrote this as quickly as I could and sent it "immediately"
thereafter, I didn't read your message till several hours after
receiving it -- I hope that doesn't mean I didn't do it

No. Why should I? Because _YOU_ are a moron and made a stupid
In case it's not already nice and clear, I'll try to make it even
clearer why this kind of "Email AUP" is _THOROUGHLY_ bogus.
Imagine that I totally accidentally ran you over with my car BUT THEN
told you that the terms and conditions of my having run you over are
that you have to accept that I'm incompetent to judge whether I should
drive or not [that's the earlier stuff], that you are to forget it ever

...and that you are never to tell anyone anything about the accident.
Do you think that would "protect" me in court if you actually had the
temerity to sue me for damages or some such?
Would any lawyer with at least two good brain cells (yes -- a very rare
breed) sensibly take _my_ case?
