Thiago's message makes me want to reply to all website change requests in 
future with "Are you sure? <yes> <no>" "Really sure? <no> <yes>" "Please 
provide 3 GPG-signed statements from KDE e.V. members confirming that you 
want this. <continue> <cancel>"; the people on the receiving end of website 
requests like "please add this mailing list" have *no* way of guessing the 
intentions or the consensus reached elsewhere. It's an annoying way to work.

O yeah, I remember that. Bear in mind that webmaster at is almost but not 
quite the same thing as /dev/null -- there is no coordinated team behind it 
handling change requests.
