Well, I have had messages send on more then one "high-volume public
ML" that did not come from me, but looked like they did. I would
have thought the contents of the message would have been enough to
let people know it was not from me, but I was wrong. So I sign all
my messages now. I can not "prove" that an unsigned message did not
come from me, but I would hope an unsigned message posted to the
list would cause people to take a closer look at it.

While it is not as necessary for me to keep up a positive reputation
on the Internet as it used to be, I still do not want other people
saying things in my name. But that may not be important to others on
the list, or they have other ways to handle it...
