Whoa boy, I *will* speak up when this listserver starts publicly doing
things that are not in the best interests of the classic computer
community. We are talking about software that is still a viable
commercial product (although granted, it appears to be an older
version.) Trying to trash the reputation of this hobby is not something
that I will be a part of, and I *will* say something.

Before you start saying they (GRC) no longer provides it, where did you
come up with that information??? http://grc.com/default.htm still has
an announcement prominently offering SpinRite in their top banner.
