Leo,
This has nothing to do with the competency of the folks on the nanog list. It's a safe rule in general. Why? Because the stupid on the Internet outnumbers all of us. It's just easier to not send clickable links then it is to have the call center lit up because your users are getting hijacked.

We know how to sign and encrypt e-mail.

We even know how to compare keys between the web site and e-mail via a

We know how to sign DNS.

Remind me again why we live in this sad word Randy (correcly) described?
Obi-Wan Kenobi: "(shocked) How could this have happened?? We're

Anakin Skywalker: "Apparently not."
