Well said! I'm not sure I really have much to say except yes yes yes!

I joined this list to see if it would serve any supplemental value to
Bugtraq and the other security-related resources out there.  So far, all I
see is politics and criticism of Symantec and SecurityFocus. Am I mistaken
that this list was intended (and spammed/advertised) to be for full
disclosure security issues? If I am not mistaken, could such politics
related stuff be moved to a different list, as it seems to me that it is
politics and commercialism that you are complaining about in the first

In other words, can't we just move on with it and stay on topic of the
list? Or was this list created to allow people to whine about SecurityFocus
and Symantec?

The answer to my question will assist me in my decision as to whether I
should advocate this mailing list or not.
