At present, I'd have to do something simpler. PGP signatures

On a more current item. Anex Anespy, aka "",
is forge-approving copies of Dave Hayes' "Network abuse: an
alternate view" FAQ into the *.answers groups.

Could someone tell me whether Dave Hayes's "FAQ" (choke) is actually
an approved FAQ or not? I know that Hayes forge-approved it himself
at least once.

on it?
