BLAG is pleased to announce that after an over-long absence -- the BLAG-style list is back! Indeed, not just one but three.

BLAG's original mailing list, blag-hatch, was created in October 2002. It was active for two years until Rackspace yanked the hard drives from the server, illegally sent them from the UK to the USA [violating the Data Protection Act], cloned them, and sent the clones to the FBI.

At that point, the lists were not brought back online, and all discussion was through the forums. For more information on this incident and its implications, take a peak at the EFF page for more information.

And so to the lists. They are run on Mailman and hosted by our friends at Autistici. One advantage of this hosting arrangement is that we can take advantage of live backups around the world. You can read more of Autistici's network of resistant communication on their R* Plan page.

r7,
Just wanted let you know that there's a typo in a link in your post. The URL for the blag-users list archive tries to take you to blag-usersl.en.html on Autistici, and it should be blag-users.en.html. (There's an extra 'l' in the URL you typed).
