No excuse.  Abuse of current@ list remit may annoy people to
request postmaster@ to remove abuser.  Better:
- Find another forum, perhaps already existing but not on @freebsd.org, Or
- Use chat at freebsd, Or
- Ask postmaster at freebsd to create a list for those who want it, eg:
	law at freebsd	remit: "Licensing, Copyright, Law, Software Patents"
