So you're calling this without evidence, and actually even without
suspicion.

What about doing at least some minimal research first? You could check
ruleqa results.

I don't think this cold-calling without suspicion was warranted. I'd
assume those who contribute to the mass-checks are smart enough to set
up their production system *and* mass-check system.

While you are certainly right that this must be set up correctly, I
believe the way you brought up the topic leaves room for improvement.

Anyway, with most mass-check contributors, this is the wrong list
anyway...
