There has been some issue recently on a French similar mailing-list (FRnOG),
an CTO of a major ISP said something vague about a technology in an
example and in a few hours that created a hearsay among popular news
websites. Quickly the rumor became a certainty and once the information
was refuted, it was difficult for thoses websites to ruin their news
which was often tagged "scoop", attributing words to this admin that he
even never said.

"Think before you post" is more effective than a legal disclaimer.
