Re: Anonymize very old Debian list posting?

Hi Martin,

thanks for your reply. I must say, that I find that a rather questionable privacy policy. Like I was writing before, I don't mind the message itself to stay. But I do mind that my email address is visible to anybody. 
Maybe I'm just unlucky for still using that same email address.
I guess reporting the message as spam will also not help me, since it will not be accepted?

Best wishes,
