It could go on forever. Suffice it to say that I agree with some of the points
in your final email, but I still think it's a hole worth filling. I also agree
with Paul - you would be attacking the symptom and not the cause. I use some of
his suggestions already, however I believe that methods like my suggestion are
the only way to *really* stop addies getting into the wrong hands. Yes, it's the
symptom, but until the governments get off their asses and legislate against
these people, there's no cure. Even then, we'll still be screwed, because
they'll just move to Antigua or somewhere.
I also realise that you don't have the time to "keep up with the code".
Personally, I'm not fond of mailman/pipermail, but that's neither here nor
there - if you can't or won't do it, there's nothing I can do about it. I would
like to state for the record though, that if the app was written in a language I
was familiar with, I wouldn't be bothering you about it - I would have scripted
something myself. I don't want to come off (as usual :) as whining about
something while not actually doing something - if I could, I would.
Once again, ah well...
