Hmm, those post HTML, etc., to high-volume mailing lists, and lists with
lots of members, deserve a few hundred messages of revenge heading in
their direction...  I do believe that a core dump, or two, is the
appropriate response from *ix uses.

Masses of unnecessary quoting is what pisses me off the most, no matter
what quoting style was done.  Likewise for anything that's difficult to
read.  Posters should make their postings clearly coherent, if they want
any chance at getting good help.

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
