Why? Personally, I think it's fine. It only happens (at most) every six
months (and sometimes more like a year).

I'm surprised at the level of concern over this, considering it's an
event that has been going on since before most of those posting about
this were even on this list. I'm hoping (in vain, I'm sure) that my
gently pointing out that those posts are useful to many people, and
that their occurrence predates most of you, will make this non-issue
die away (and you make me REALLY MISS srh).

While I still worked (I don't now; I'm retired), it was nice to have
those alerts, because it could be checked against the *things* *that*
*should* *be* *patched* for sanity. Even now, there's still Cisco stuff
on my toy network, and I *still* care.

Could we just stick to the interesting issues of IPv6, and SMTP, and
move on? Please?

You've confused equality of opportunity for equality of outcomes,
and have seriously confused justice with equality.
