Well that WAS the case but on sup.netbsd.org,
that port is not available instead it is using the old
standard second port which is clogged up by everyone capbable
of reading sup.1.
I have mailed email@example.com on this and I have NOT
received any response.
Why firstname.lastname@example.org ? Because to date I have not
heard a statement as to who is in charge of the supping there.
