Well, if it were a list for security professionals - with a consensus on
what security was and with a shared view how to look and act professional -
maybe. But then again, many people here would probably not qualify as
security pro in the economic sense - they are not employed in security per
sé, whilst many people so employed are ignorant of this list and the likes.
They sell firewalls in a box or ISO cretfication advice. Nanog on the other
hand is a list for people that might actually meet in jobrelated ways. FD
isn't, it is more for the vulnerability-inclined, while most security pro's
I meet are procedure minded. I have yet to meet a security officer that
could actually grasp a sniffer trace or an auditor that could read code....
And as far as security consultants go - well, ah, there are some good ones,
i guess. But maybe we could do a poll here: what job pays your bills. My
guess would be many sysadmins and proggers.

But not to worry, I can act professional myself, like wear a tie - if
someone could mail the link tothe manual on how to do the double windsor

&gt; Should Full-Disclosure only allow so-called -real- names? I was on<BR>
&gt; Nanog (a network admin list) and they have a rule where you can
&gt; post with a first and second name, instead of an alias or nick, to<BR>
&gt; kind of give more credibility that you are a security professional
&gt; not a hax0r or script kiddie.<BR>
&gt; <BR>
&gt; Should the same rule be pro actively implemented to Full-Disclosure
&gt; is it a dead duck idea?<BR>
&gt; <BR>
&gt; I know hax0rs or script kiddies would probably use fake first and<BR>
&gt; second names if it was implemented, but at least the list would
&gt; neat and a tad more professional?<BR>
&gt; <BR>
&gt; Feedback welcomed....<BR>
