Coming from someone who posts with:

X-Mailer: Microsoft Outlook Express 6.00.2600.0000

and is too clueless to even configure it to prevent its obvious and 
usual crap such as:

Content-Type: text/html;
Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable


<<snippity, snip>>
... I'll personally apologise on full-disclosure and reinstate
your h4x0r status for you ;)

is the best laugh on this list yet.

(If you don't understand my point, just disable the entirely 
unnecessary bandwidth wasting HTML-ized copy of the messages you 
post to this list.  And those contemplating posting HTML-only 
messages -- just don't do it.)

And yes, I know I'm posting to the list, but unlike most of the rest 
so far bitching about the crappy, off-topic posts, thi is on-topic.

When you signed up, you got a confirmation request message.  In part, 
it said:

   ...  Send questions to full-disclosure-admin () lists netsys com 

If you don't like the "[Full-Disclosure]" Subject: prefix, mail the 
list admin and ask for it to be changed.  If you don't like the 
noise-to-signal ratio, mail the list admin.  If you fail to get 
satisfaction from those approaches, consider unsubscribing as, while 
it remains an unmoderated list, some of the things people are so busy 
complaining about will remain facts of life.

This is not rocket science but "Mailing lists 101"...
