I think this is right, there is an Extropian handshake, although it's
not particularly secret. Max invented it. I think it was part of the
idea of Extropianism as being a supportive social infrastructure for
people who share a common point of view. Unfortunately the medium of
Internet email doesn't seem to facilitate this aspect of the philosophy.

I don't remember exactly how it goes. Anyone?
