I agree, but the list is for security *discussion*. If people want to
discuss how to secure thier system, what port scanner to use, etc. it
will be allowed. For that end, you may want to filter discuss into
it's own folder. I would like to see discuss become a (relatively)
moderately traffiked list where people discuss security, not just
While I agree some of this could have gone to the qmail list, or
mdk-admin, the portion of the discussion as to which was more secure
(mailman vs. ezmlm) was on topic, to a degree.
