Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

No, it's not. In fact, it's a really really _bad_ idea to "wash"
configurations, logs, etc. We've had numerous occasions where people
hunted down "bugs" that didn't exist because a poster meddled with the
configuration before they posted.

Post your configurations unmodified. This is a public mailing list. You
get support for free from the community. Confidentiality is not
something that can be guaranteed here. Same goes for IRC or
configuration snippets you post on pastebin. If you need a problem fixed
under a confidentiality agreement, then you'll have to shell out some
bucks to hire a consultant from a professional services company.

Disclosure: I work for one such company, and our Professional Services
Agreement, which applies to any of our services, as a standard
non-disclosure clause.

Hope this helps.
