Hmm, seems a little hypocritical to call for only the
author to announce the paper (so as not to be the
Information Minister). But are you then the Secretary
of State, defending the poor author that cannot defend
their own rights?

It is my impression that if the OP and readers would
find the link useful, it belongs here, and waiting for
the author to announce it is not very helpful. Would
you have preferred an announcement that an undisclosed
location holds more information pending authors approval?


But much worse, your tirade contradicts the philosophy
you purport to uphold. Stick up for your own writings
and let the author make his own complaints or not as
they choose.

As far as your last line ...' then...', my question
to you is 'then What'?

Joe just posted a URL with an analysis: 


Certainly there is nothing like an 'early warning HUMAN system' 
but really, how about letting the author's of their own work 
make these announcements. There appears to be a new trend of 
coat-tail riders hanging in the rafters ready to leap down on 
any and everything any one of any consequence does. And claim 
their fame to being the first to pass on the information of same.

Come one, if one wants to be the 'Minister of Information' -- 
the first guy on the block, the commentator of other's work like 
that that thor charactar from Denmark who also sits in ambush 
ready to leap out and grab other's works for their own 
glorification, create another security mailing list. Security 
personel worth there salt are well aware of what's going on when 
and where. If they aren't and if they need such a 'Minister of 
Information' then....
