I 100% agree with this sentiment.
Also the monthly reminder of the rules which no one reads either, after
perhaps the first month of a new participant.

The only thing I did not like about the site was that the good guys here are
hackers.
The word "hacker" to me is a cyber terrorist in denial that he doing anything
bad.

You might also ask for permission to mirror the article.
That way if these people go out of business because they label themselves as
hackers & various law enforcement is trying to put all hackers in jail, when
they are gone away, we still have a copy of their article.
Of course there may need to be some editorial adjustment to avoid David being
self-labeled as a hacker.

Other great style guides for technical list discussion, which I occasionally
read, am enthusiastic about, resolve to adopt, then 2 days later am back to
my old bad habits.
