Moderator Policy re: Out-of-office responses

Well, it's that time of the year again when people are starting to go on
vacation. Good for you! However, you don't need to tell me, and everyone
else on this list, about it.

This is a gentle reminder to PLEASE remove yourself from Security-Basics
when you go on vacation, or else set your automatic "out of office" reply
*properly*, so it does not respond to every post on the list. Today I
received a dozen out-of-office replies to my latest SecurityFocus article
announcement. Everyone who posts messages receives these OoOR's as well.

As there are about 13,000 people on this list, it is certainly a form of
spam to send your vacation message to everyone who posts here.

Therefore, if I receive an out-of-office response from you, you will be
removed from the list without warning. Deleted. Zapped. #mv user>null

Kind Regards,
