I really don't see what the big deal is about this. I think that it's useful and important for people to know that I'm a BEA employee on the list, as I generally like knowing where others work when I read discussions. I personally don't understand why everyone tries to hide their employers' names. It is, after all, just a disclaimer.
Maybe a solution would be to add a filter to Apache's list manager to strip out the disclaimer text. -Patrick -- Patrick Linskey BEA Systems, Inc. > -----Original Message----- > From: Matt Hogstrom [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] > Sent: Friday, June 02, 2006 8:58 AM > To: email@example.com > Subject: Re: java.util.concurrent > > Patrick, > > Working for IBM I'm a bit wary of the disclaimer at the > bottom of the e-mail.
