>>>>>[All of this talk about changing the address of this system is
distressing. First, nothing printed on a computer system in this format
can be used to incriminate a person. Hell, you can't even use it as
probably cause for a search warrant or an arrest. I could say "I just
broke into Dragon Den's computer and deleted all of the payroll files."
The cops couldn't do drek to implicate me in it.

Frankly, as far as I'm concerned, this is neutral territory. We are all
equal persons and beings on here; all a simple pulse in the datalines. I
don't care if you are the president of Yoshida Tech or the drekking runner
that just raided his computer.]<<<<<

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.
