My message could have been missinterpreted as it was in reply to your email.
So just to clarify: it was meant as a general question, while discussing
what is supposed to be acceptable on this list.
I am not aware of any astro-turfing or sockpuppets on this list.
As always I've put some email addresses in a search engine if people refer to
their experience to better understand what they mean, as a number of people
run a blog or are involved in other organisations. The background is that
some spam and chatbots are getting more and more sofisticated and if a
message is phrased very generally or very provocative it does not makes sense
to respond to the questions. It just unlikely that an email address is used
the first in public only on this list.
I've asked Daniel about two email addresses, because I found the exchange with
the quoted HTML email and him strange and hope to clear up unwritten
suspicions some may have.
