Also not feasible if any users subscribe to this list or most technical discussion mailing lists. For example, here you are likely to get links into the SA Wiki or to KAM's rules. On the Postfix list it is a rare week that does not have multiple links to the DEBUG_README file posted.

I don't count a plain text file as a "document" in this context.

The example provided was apparently to a directory (URL ending in '/') but redirected to a .doc.

This of course is the weakness with that option.
