Castlecops: more comments

Further to my post of 25th December about the withdrawal of the CastleCops services, there’s a blog at Darkreading that includes more information, including some quotes from Paul Laudanski, who was, with his wife Robin, the driving force behind the organization: also quotes from our own Randy Abrams, David Ulevitch of PhishTank, and Garth Bruen of KnujOn.

What I, and many others, would like to see, is someone finding a way of redeploying the many volunteers who joined forces under the Castlecops banner. Unfortunately, it would take quite an effort to match the six years of hard work Paul and Robin put into the organization.

Best wishes for the new year to them, and to you.
