This isn't the first time I've disagreed with an RFC.

In this case, the signature is GUARANTEED to fail verification.  Adding the
TLUG footer breaks it.  So ...

... removing the signature and the TLUG server is in compliance with the intent,
if not the letter, of the RFC.

You know me -- if it's never going to work, then there's no point in having
it in there.

More troubling is the MTA advertising that it accepts SSLv3, though.  I'd
volunteer to go over the server with a fine-toothed comb, but I walked away from
TLUG server admin duties over a decade ago and I really don't want the
responsibility at this point in my life :)
