General Attrition Mayhem

A generic mail list. Information about, new content, changes and downtime will be posted. Further, interesting articles and a bit of humor will no doubt cross the list. It is not a discussion list. Send an email to subscribe and every post to the list has the list info int he header. As of March, 2021, list archives ar eno longer available.


This is Rick Forno's primary announcement and commentary list. Items covered include distributing new commentary and articles and occasional items of interest in the technology, security, policy and current events areas. List subscribers include journalists, geeks, political folks and average interested people.

ISN: InfoSec News

InfoSec News is a privately run, medium traffic list that caters to distribution of information security news articles. These articles will come from newspapers, magazines, online resources, and more. [Note: ISN began as a list on attrition before being taken over by WK and moved to its own domain.]

The Rest

Over the years we have hosted a dozen other mail lists, all of which have been retired or moved on. The archives for those lists are no longer available as of March, 2021. We may restore them in the future but no guarantees. Update: As of August or so, many of the list archives are available again.

Disclaimer: We will unsubscribe any e-mails that send vacation messages, "full mailbox" errors, or qualities of a vanity forward. Please don't come crying to us if you can't subscribe to or unsubscribe from the list on your own; instructions for doing so are in the email headers.
