I just mailed debian-user explaining this...
If you are using anonymous to mirror the archive you should STOP and then
mail me directly for the account and passwd from which you should mirror.
I will stop and start this account so that mirror accidents don't happen.
The mirror is going just as fast as it can from master.debian.org :)

... 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.)
