CLM> CLM> I believe the vendor should, but my opinion matters not :) I agree. It stinks when cutting code, knowing that _some_ competitor is slinging out crap... they're cutting corners, and won't be held accountable -- at least in the short term. This hurts the entire industry. Sort of like deaggregating routes, helping track down and shut down spammers and abusers, et cetera... cut corners, cut costs, and hurt the entire industry.

Exactly. CLM> > IANAL, but automobile vendors have recall notices... CLM> CLM> mandated by federal regulations inside the US (atleast)... CLM> perhaps you want this for vendors also? Something like that. Notification currently is decent, but lacks teeth. I think vendors and admins should be required to follow certain procedures to qualify for liability limitations.
