The comp.risks digest will almost never post a bare URL without
some explanatory writing attached to it. Also, Peter Neumann is much
more likely to choose an article that discusses *in depth* what went
wrong at *one* instance (for instance, your attempted post yesterday
about the data breach at OU) than "things suck all over" writing...
Your best bet to get published in comp.risks is to summarize the OU
incident in 3-4 well-written paragraphs, covering (a) what they did wrong
(b) why it was wrong and (c) what the results were, adding possibly one or
two of the *best* URLs containing further information.
