I've also seen multi-line greetings from various servers for
several years now.
I think the trend to use multi-line greeting was begun as an
anti-zombie tactic, and the valid clients were quickly fixed.
Unless someone wants to argue this the other way, I consider
this item to be closed. The text has been changed in the
I'm confused. Please correct me.
Are you saying that you have included a statement in the new text that
suggest implementations intentionally use MULTI-LINE welcomes in order
to trap bad guys?
I hope not because its not the reason we offer a multi-line system
policy display. Its not the reason AOL and others do so as well. It is
what is, a logged system policy display and done so for legal reasons.
If there is a indirect benefit trapping bad guys who do not properly
honoring it, it is just that, a side effect benefit. But its not the
reason for using a multi-line welcome display.
