I apologise for wrongly naming you. I had recalled writing you before about
this, & getting no action, but it seems it's Herb at fault, not yours. Sorry !
Others, Please write Herb Peyerl <email@example.com> (as moderator
of netbsd-announce@ ) that spamming the world about BSD booze ups in SF
severely degrades the signal to noise ratio of announce@ compared with _real_
announcements, EG major new releases, ports new this month, security etc.
Cross posting SF netbsd-advocacy@ & netbsd-users@ is debatable, but arrogantly
spamming netbsd-announce@ with SFBA NUG drinks venues just degrades announce@ .
