I am not a network official. I am just a tyro users, one individual
but please hearken to my plea.

I plead with you not to post uuencoded binaries to net.sources.
Please post only human readable sources to that collection. The
only allowable exception that I can see would be for binary data!
in a standardized interchange format, e.g. an IFF encoded picture
file, or machine independant initialization data for a posted
program. Machine specific encryptions should be confined to the
newsgroup/list devoted to that hardware.

Interesting....

A year ago the "newsgroup/list devoted to the hardware"
net.micro.mac threw out mac sources and binaries and CREATED
net sources.mac.

Now, along people come..... It's an old story.
