Hi. This is D. J. Bernstein's automated mail-handling program. I've
received a message from you addressed to one of Professor Bernstein's
public mailing lists. The top of your message is shown below.
Professor Bernstein has asked me to reject all anonymous messages and
bulk mail messages. But I'm a rather primitive computer program; I'm not
sure whether your message identifies you, and I'm not sure whether it's
If you reply to this notice, you are (1) acknowledging that Professor
Bernstein's mailing-list recipients do not want to receive bulk mail and
anonymous mail; (2) confirming that your message identifies you and is
not part of a bulk mailing; and (3) agreeing to pay each recipient $250
if your message is anonymous or part of a bulk mailing.
I won't look at the contents of your reply. A simple OK is fine, as long
as it's sent to the address shown above. You don't have to include a
second copy of your message.
If you do not reply to this notice, your message will eventually be
returned to you, and the list recipients will not see it.
I realize that this confirmation process is inconvenient. I'm sorry for
the hassle. I hope that IM2000, Professor Bernstein's new Internet mail
architecture, succeeds in eliminating these problems. In the meantime,
we're all suffering because of a few inconsiderate people.

P.S. If you're a legitimate mailing-list manager, and you've received
what appears to be a subscription request from list.cr.yp.to: That
request is a forgery. Professor Bernstein uses different addresses for
his mailing-list subscriptions. Please remove the list.cr.yp.to address
from your mailing list. Do not reply to this message.
Note that high-quality mailing-list software confirms each subscription
request with a secure cryptographic authenticator; supports tracing by
returning a complete copy of each request, including Received fields;
and supports filtering by adding a Mailing-List field to every outgoing
message, including confirmation notices. If your software does not have
these features, upgrade!
