You should see the sunmanagers list!
I don't have enough free time in the day to keep up every post on all the
lists I host or maintain - sunhelp, geeks, rescue, a couple of private
lists, AND the SunManagers list - so there's 3-4 people on sunmanagers that
report stupid doo-doo poopyheads to me so I can nuke them.
That list tends to attract more people who want to use it for "HAY TELL ME
HOW I MAKE SOLARIS WORK" and not read the list FAQ or guidelines - they get
nuked in very short order. Very rarely nowdays do I give a warning rather
than just removing them to begin with; not with almost 6000 people
Wow, I just realized I've been running/maintaining sunmanagers for eight
The rescue list has been around for ten years now - the earliest valid
archive from using Mailman is from May of '99, but it (and the SunHELP
list) were on Procmail/Smartlist before that.
Looks like the Geeks list started sometime in March of 2001:
