"You can find the entire list of services on More might come in the future." Longtime Slashdot reader alfino writes: Yay for privacy. We don't care about where you come from, and now you don't even have to tell anyone that you're using Debian. The archive at is already in the list. Support for more redundant Debian archive access is expected to come When It's Ready.

    that's great, but they STILL do not obfuscate email addresses on debian's bugtracker, and they've taken some heat over the years for it. i've had more than one email account flooded with spam so bad they've had to be abandoned because of that, and eventually just said 'fuck it' and i don't even bother anymore, it is just not worth it.

    • With this one, simple trick [] I eliminated 80% of my spam. Spammers hate this trick! Read it now before they take it down.
      • Were you deliberately writing like a spammer to make fun?

        If not, the basic Postfix configuration documentation you link to can be effectively in profoundly reducing spam, but the "remaining 20%" is still enough to flood most moderate mail servers.

        I am amused that Symantec is claiming that spam has fallen below 50% of all current email. What they're counting as spam has apparently been pre-filtered on the _outbound_ side, by ISP's blocking port 25 outbound and forcing their clients to use authentication to m

        • Yep, I was trying to mimic the spam/ad writing style.

          The last 20% is not trivial to eliminate and often (always in many cases) overwhelms legitimate mail.

    In the meantime, I read some funny shit about the election.

    " you don't even have to tell anyone that you're using Debian."

    Oh the shame, what would my neighbors say if they knew I was using Debian? They'd probably stop picketing the child molester's house down the street and come after me with torches and pitchforks.

  • "Yay for privacy. We don't care about where you come from, and now you don't even have to tell anyone that you're using Debian"

    but systemd reports back to those who Do care!
    So everyones a winner baby!
