1 - this list will be moved to a server in albania or failing that in turkemistan. 2 - only posters using an anonymous remailer will be allowed to post 3 - to further aid matters all 'from' fields on posts will be filled with a randomised 'name' drawn for 18 random alphanumerics [randon number generator courtesy of rp]. 4 - a sophisticated parsing mechanism will compare all posts to databases of world names, brands and trademarks [algorithm courtesy jay and ken] that will use a similar mechanism to 3 [above] to substitue for any possible trademarks. 5 - a 'list mom bot' will substitute 'xxxxxx' for any speech deemed to be potentially slanderous [alain will be helping jay on this implementation]. 6 - all source code posted will first of all be translated to serbo-croate then portuguese and then back to english in order to remove any possibly offensive variable names. [babelfish]. in the process random lines from previous posts will be included in case the source code is copyrighted. [my usual technique]. 7 - sigs, countries, names and all possible material permitting identification will be blocked out as per 5 [above]. 8 - the list will grind to a halt and posters will revert to PPTP <http://www.ne2.com/> for further communication. [see also <http://news.com.com/2100-1001-257064.html?legacy=cnet> for a real life application of the above. no it was not an april fool.] :-j there you go, now that i've solved all the problems here, i'll turn my attention on solving other pressing problems... pass me the number of the whitehouse please.
