Even Full-Disclosure doesn't get the crap that comes to the Debian
lists.  It's because FD understands that Spam is Spam, and that FD
doesn't allow spammers to abuse FD's freedom and openness.  

Openness and freedom doesn't mean that you shouldn't ask for a password
or some identification before allowing you to login or post.  Crazy
Debian extremists. :-)
