Bruce,

  I agree, while we all need to 'do the right thing' and only announce what
we are suppose to, we also need to maintain the right level being paranoid
to protect the networks we are responsible for.

What a crock of crap.  Knowing who someone is doesn't stop them from causing

intentional or unintentional problems.  In fact, authentication is more

Puleeeaaazzzz...
