On 11/30/99, batz logged on and ended up relaying this through a
little-known Microsoft open mail server to the North Korean Central

Right, thanks. Spent a few hours digging thru my own archives, couldn't
put my hands on it. I'm confident I'll find it some where, thanks for the
I went to a few newsgroups where the NRA types hang.
Lurked. Gotta be careful not to do an *off-topic* thing. Might take a bit
of a lurk to spot an appropriate opening.
The NRA is a huge org, wielding some considerable power. Gotta find a way
to steer these boys and girls to a pro-crypto stance. And get 'em active...
I'm sure that they'll be receptive, if given half a chance.
Hell, who knows what else they find themselves in agreement with?
WTO? My take is Clinton is pandering to the protesters. He still wants to
make the mega-deal, he's such a puppet for Amerikan Business...
