No he shouldn't.  Because if people cannot moderate themselves from
childish behavior, and if this list is the target of repeated abuse,
it needs some sort of check.

I don't think anyone here wants to see actual content moderation - and
I don't think that's the answer to the problem anyways. And certainly
no one wants the possibility of information not freely flowing.  But
this list NEEDS a filter of some sort.  A content/SPF filter of some
perhaps?

On content:  Perhaps the list can go un-moderated without allowing
profanity - thus filtering out a lot of needless bitch sessions [and
continued retribution] ?  Certainly there are words that have no place
in Full-Disclosure.

On SPF:  Perhaps some of the bogus impersonation posts would get
caught/blocked by a simple SPF check?

I don't need a public spanking for posting this. I'm only trying to
think of a way that we can do something about what is becoming the
serious decline of the list. I can ignore and filter my email just
fine - but I know what's going on and I just want to see things get
better.  They seem to continuously get worse.

  Yes, you fucking should.  This is a NON-moderated list.  There are plenty
of perfectly good moderated lists out there which you won't have to filter.
But /this/ list is a non-moderated list, on which every individual
subscriber is handed the full responsibility for and control over what they
do or do not see.  That's the whole point.

  In short, exactly what you want is perfectly easily available, but you'd
rather complain about something else not being it.  That's like filling your
car with diesel when it takes unleaded, complaining that your tank is now
full of crap that you didn't want in it, and when someone points out that
the other pipe on the same pump gives you unleaded you just stand there,
waving the diesel hose and complaining about how *this* one ought to give
unleaded as well because that's the one you want it to come out of.

  Go elsewhere and you will be happy.  Go to bugtraq, where you *will* be
spoonfed the prefiltered predigested pap that appears to be what you want.

    cheers,
      DaveK
