That would be the logical decision, yes. Not to poke fun, but did you really
expect an official response after YEARS of nothing from Oracle? This is the
same company that refused to release any Java patches until the DHS issued
a national warning suggesting that everyone uninstall Java.
Well, yes. We do have oracle employees who contribute to this
mailing list. It is not accurate or fair to stereotype the whole
company. Oracle by itself is as large as some cities or countries.
Yes, these remaining employees do so because they still can. Except
for those employees brave enough to post to Illumos/OpenIndiana lists
(there are some), there will be no more avenues remaining for
unmoderated two-way communication with the outside world. There have
been some cases where people said unfavorable things about Oracle on
this list. Oracle needs to control its message and the principle form
of communication will be via private support calls authorized by
service contracts and authorized corporate publications.
