Just seems to be excessive paranoia Sannse. I guess you have your reasons,
but I can't imagine any legitimate ones for not wanting your information out
there. Even with the crap I had to go through with Brandt's minions it comes
out better for all.

Giving any sort of power (even adminship) to somebody who the community does
not know by name has always seemed wacky.

Have we gotten an answer about unblock-l volunteers? I create accounts, see
passwords, locations, frequently names and phone numbers there. Seems like
that should be verified somehow.
