Good idea, interesting topics on that page,
but that domain is bad for reasons starred (***):
*** Google is sniffing IP numbers, & stupidly setting various section
headings to German here, eg:
top right blue `Anmelden' button
Über diese Community
BSDCan hat Folgendes ursprünglich geteilt:
My browser has a German IP number, but no Lang. env vars, as confirmed by:
I wont report it to google:
*** I dont work free for giant monopolies.
Seems to be [or include, or only be] a web forum ?,
I gave up trying to find out, clicking beyond that page was
*** Agonisingly slow to google, as usual from here)
I prefer plain mail lists, not on line web forums.
If I wanted a platform neutral mail list

I looked on http://allbsd.de/mailingliste/index.html
As one potential site, which won't have NSA spies (maybe
BND .de instead ;-), but much less likely & easily a lot
less hungry than NSA) & not a monopoly, not a commercial
harvester) but lists were only in German last time I looked,
I recall (so far, but they wouldnt mind creating one I
think), but all links broken to mailman currently, eg
I guess any mainstream (or minor) *bsd.org could create an allbsd@
plain list if wanted, drivable by mailman or majordomo. But
I guess it could be better to keep it off a specific-bsd.org
to avoid suspicion of bias. I too could create an allbsd@
list on my majordomo%berklix.org@localhost If people asked, & If there
was none elsewhere already ? (disclaimer I use FreeBSD, & have
used & credit NetBSD etc eg for urtwn0: & have used OpenBSD &
helped distribut PC-BSD etc).
Is there a similar plain text allbsd@ list on some non-commercial
non- NSA- site, not needing a web forum ? If so, I'd subscribe.
