Hi Phil,

I appreciate your feedback on my posts, although I'm not quite sure what
you're trying to tell me.

> I don't read your posts, because (a) I don't trust attachments anyway, and

I use a digital signature to sign my Emails. That way, people can verify
that the Email on this list are really mine. This is a common practice
that many people exercise, some on this Mailing list (Raymond, DaB.),
many more on other lists.
It's completly secure, and if you don't wan't to verify my digital
signature, just ignore the attachments.

There *have* been instances where Emails with a faked address arrived on
Wikipedia mailing lists (which is something quite easy to do). So it's
not just a theoretical problem :)

I do. I use Thunderbird/3.1.13. My "in-reply-to" and "references" header
field is set, so you should see my mails just normal in the conversation
What Email client are you using?


Ps.: Digital signature disabled in this Email for testing purposes
