I took your address out of the address line David, I'm getting enough 
of those trash confirm requests (Peter Whalley has started up again), 
in extremely bulky html format no less, that I do nothing but hit the 
delete key pon them.   Please don't waste space in my inbox with your 
5k-8k worth of a simple 50 character question wrapped in 5 to 10 
kilobytes of html.  I'm one of those to whom html is a waste of 
bandwidth & cpu resources to display.  Yes, it has its place, but it 
sure isn't welcome on most mailing lists.

Now, if my response was to have given a clear and concise amswer to 
your question (not bloodly likely, I'm way too verbose 99% of the 
time as this list knows very well, but that just me being an old 
fart), but you didn't see that response because I didn't jump thru 
the hoops to conform to your somewhat narrow view of how things 
'should' work, then who is the ultimate loser?  Me, for wasting the 
time to answer in the first place, or you, because you didn't get the 
reply, so your problem isn't fixed?

Good question, that...  Now, if the message somehow contains an 
advisory that you are using such a system, I wouldn't have bothered 
replying in the first place, and you still wouldn't have an answer.  
No net effect on you, but a large one for me, which probably means it 
will never come to pass.
