Read that disclaimer slowly and then you'll understand how that
disclaimer is absolutely unappropriate for a mailing list. How can I
justify that I am indeed the intended "specific individual"? How
can_you_ be sure of which "specific individual" is the intended
recipient when you don't even know who all are there on the list?
Lastly, all the messages sent to the list are archived and available
on the web for absolutely anyone to read. "Confidential" it remains no
more. And tomorrow your company sues ILUG-Bom for "disclosure,
copying, or distribution of this message".

So, I can tell the "considerate human being" story to you too. And no,
you need not deny yourself access to this list. Simply subscribe using
another mail account, say, from Yahoo! etc. that doesn't print such

PS: Does your company allow personal mails thru the corporate ID?
