Sheesh, and I thought it was those pages JW was hosting... In fact if
Bruce had done what I asked and passed on the info rather than an email
that was intended to be private (hence the attempts to provide a bit of
psychological support in case JW had used conventions & other such
physical gatherings to get too close for comfort) my name would not be
linked with this. At least not until 2 weeks later since when the
ominous silence gave rise to the suspicion that a "lets hush it up and
hope it goes away" policy was being adopted. People outside the Debian
inner core also have a right to be warned that wariness in revealing
personal details to individuals like JW might be advisable. Like I said,
it's a health and safety at work issue, more than anything else.
Since you have brought your actions and your emails to Bruce and
Richard and the follow-up on Debian private into the open I will
publicly say that *you* are directly and indirectly responsible for
more traffic on debian-private in the last two months than everything
else put together.
Not that I couldn't respond on many of your other points but I have
already committed to trying to put this one on ice now folks are alerted
to any potential dangers to their person. So I shall stop there.
