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?

That's what you get with an unmoderated list.  People complain about things 
and send flames. Then they complain about the complaining, and flame people 
for sending flames.  This is the first unmoderated list I've subscribed to 
in years (out of curiosity.)  There's a reason. :)
