Description

We should clearly have it suggest mailing someplace else.

But where?

We have methodically shut down all ways for outside people to reach us.

Should we make a new, research-oriented, list and put some caretakers on it who will then forward non-spam mails to some larger internal list?

Hm.

Happy to update the website if I know what to change.

Here is my suggestion lightly discussed with arma:

We create a tor-research@ mailing list with private archive. Why private? Because apparently people in the research world might want to explain their idea to Tor without being public so there idea doesn't get stolen.

We find people in Tor that want to volunteer to be on that list which job would be the first line and can re-route to some more relevant people or reply directly with more advise, etc... (I've already found 3 volunteers for this and I'm sure more people loving Tor research would want to be on it.)

We then advertise the list has being "Hey, have neat research or want to start doing some, contact us there". One obvious place is of course research.tpo.

Thoughts?

Handing over to metrics-team, because I'm not currently working on this.

This got fixed when the page was redone, presumably to add the safety board info.
