AppSec touches so many different areas of life, business, government, etc
that it makes sense for technical conversations to stray into, ahem,
 "side-channel" conversations.

We will be setting up a new list for this soon. Stay tuned....

...and thank you everyone for being such passionate members of the OWASP
community. I do not want to water-down the flames of that passion. I only
redirect it. :)

Hello Jim,

As the chief violator of the rule, I thank you! I believe it is good
leadership to cull the community and keep the focus.
Second, I am sure we all agree this list is already way to much noise and
not enough signal. I fully agree with the secondary list; although perhaps
owasp-general is more appropriate - since there is no way to predict what
choatic topics may float through the aether there? Lets say
owasp-philosophy for serious discussions about ethics, and the philosophy
of security!

Please accept my sincerest apologies everyone;
