Mailing List Logs for ShadowRN

Date: Tue, 5 Apr 1994 14:46:29 -0500

This is a general announcement to clear up some problems.

I _AM NOT_ resigning my position as "Fearless Leader". Yesterday, some
coward forged (badly, mind you) three messages. Two to NERPS and one to
ShadowRN that stated that I was resigning.

This coward obviously had some problems with the way I am administrating
the lists, but instead of coming to me about it, he/she hid behind forged
SMTP protocols in a vain attempt to discredit me.

I have a fairly good idea who the person might be, and both HEARN and
other authorities are investigating the matter. The fact that the
forgeries were so poorly executed will most likely make the investigation

In the meantime, I will (attempt) to PGP sign all postings of an
administrative nature, in an effort to make verification of the origins

For those of you who don't know what PGP is, information can be found in
the RN FAQ, and the program can be found at:

It is available for many platforms, including unix, VMS, DOS, and MAC.

Version: 2.3a

These messages were posted a long time ago on a mailing list far, far away. The copyright to their contents probably lies with the original authors of the individual messages, but since they were published in an electronic forum that anyone could subscribe to, and the logs were available to subscribers and most likely non-subscribers as well, it's felt that re-publishing them here is a kind of public service.
