No, if I link to a site, the webmaster of that site is perfectly
justified in sending me mail. What I think is silly is asking me
to go in and modify archives. What if the archived message were
GPG-signed? And what's even sillier is that if you can write a
script to bug your site's referers to change their links, and get
the link right in the mail, you can write a 404 handler to recognize
old URL conventions from your site and redirect to the new location.
Thanks for posting your experience getting FreeS/WAN to talk to
