I was chatting with some coworkers today and they told me about a discussion about Evergreen on the AUTOCAT mailing list. I decided to sign up because I had previously considered it and, really, what’s one more mailing list to join and then ignore?
After signing up, I had to laugh when I received the confirmation e-mail in my inbox which stated:
This list is confidential. You should not publicly mention its existence, or forward copies of information you have obtained from it to third parties.
Isn’t it time that this notice be removed from the confirmation message? I was able to find the sign-up form with an easy Google search, there’s a Wikipedia page about the list, and there are even archives up on GMane. I think the AUTOCAT has been out of the bag for some time…
