I really appreciate the direct reply.
I am considering moving my DeleGate to OpenBSD and running
it in a "jail" just in case.
I am implementing the settings in the link you have provided as well.
Thanks again for the work done on DeleGate so far and the new features
still to come.

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and
hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series
of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.
