Barry, I think that we should put a filter on the ietf.org that bounces
all messages with confidentiality notices.
Yes, and perhaps disclaimers/confidentiality notices should be standardized
their own MIME type to make automatic processing easier so receivers of this
kind of notice (mailing-list or other) can respect the wishes of the sender.
+1, I am quite concerned by those unneeded clots of legal wisdom
infesting more and more places. Couldn't they be concise, at least?
A confidentiality notice shouldn't need to thoroughly explain the
legal meaning of the term "confidential"... Rather than formulate the
law so as to leverage the Internet, legal systems at times seem to be
hindering it with questionable obligations.
I do not think that size is really the issue. It can even make things worse - I
saw some attempts (from Cisco people I think) to use a link instead of a
complete notice, but now I have to click on the link and read the web page,
which takes more time than reading an embedded text.
Using a specific MIME type for the notice text itself permits to not display it
if my mailer is configured this way. If in addition we have an Header field
that describes the restrictions detailed in the disclaimer text, then we can 1)
configure IETF mailing-lists to bounce emails that clash with IETF's Note Well
and 2) configure our individual mailer to bounce emails with a confidentiality
notice but that are not sent specifically to us.
