Yes! Incoming is what it stands for INCOMING.

If you want an OUTGOING then someone will have to create one by manually 
moving the files from Incoming over to OUTGOING.

I am sorry but I don't need anymore complaints about corrupt files.
I also don't want the illegal software that has been uploaded lately to 
be mirrored to other sites. Please understand the problems involved here. 
Maybe the announcement should be uploaded instead of mailed and when the 
archive maintainer moves the file into public view then it will get 
mailed to the mailing list.

I am sorry to be an ass here but you have to understand these views. I am 
doing what is best for the University by not allowing for illegal 
software to be downloaded.

... Any resemblance between the above views and those of my employer,

The question of the existence of views in the absence of anyone to hold
them is left as an exercise for the reader.  The question of the
existence of the reader is left as an exercise for the second god
coefficient.  (A discussion of non-orthogonal, non-integral polytheism
is beyond the scope of this article.)
