Did you get permission from the authorities?
Doesn't anybody read the instructions anymore?
Quoting from the rc5 clients page:

This is the official listing of RC5 v2 clients, they have been tested
to be functioning correctly. The binaries and source here are the ONLY
ones you should be using, trojans and other versions have been released,
please avoid them. Please do not make attempts to mirror or redistribute
the client binaries on your own web/ftp server, or any other means. If
you wish to provide a convenient method for your websurfers to download
clients, please only provide a URL link to it on our FTP site or
preferably this page. 

To unsubscribe, send email to majordomo at llamas.net with 'unsubscribe rc5' in the body.
