no, I believe the filename was vpopmail-skel.tar.gz or something.. something 
that 1) would probably be better distributed in a patch (I assume it was just 
the tarr'ed up vpopmail tree, potentially with binaries), and second, better 
placed on a website.  I don't know who it was from or exactly what it was, I 
was just trying to get a quick handle of what it was before I deleted it, as 
we REALLY needed our internet.

it wasn't censorship.  If I hadn't done it, we would have had basically no 
internet (because it was eating all of our upstream) for at least 4 hours.  
Please note that I said "kills our puny 400kbit upstream".
