we are really sorry for this having happened and can ensure that the list
discussion at lists.fsfellowship.eu is not run by the FSFE nor is it in any other
way part of FSFE's infrastructure or communication channels.

IP-adresses associated with the infrastructure behind
discussion at lists.fsfellowship.eu indicate that the list is run by Daniel
Pocock. Again, we can ensure that neither Daniel Pocock nor anyone else ever
had allowance to misuse our list of subscribers for their private infrastructure.

[Attention] Meanwhile a script is being misused to unsubscribe all members of
this list discussion at lists.fsfe.org automatically without their consent. If
you like to stay on this list and you receive a mail to confirm your removal,
do not follow the link!

We will stop this attack as soon as possible and discuss the case with legal
experts to take action accordingly.

Feeling sorry for any inconvenience,
   Erik for the FSFE
