It seems that if you sign up with this list you also sign up for some
verbal abuse. Reserve that for people who should know better, like
folks who sign messages as a system administrator at a well known large
engineering college, and then whine about trying to un subscribe. A
little creative fun at the expense of such a bozo coupled with practical
advice is permissible when the problem is this egregious. The original
complainer needed some gentle education not the abuse you heaped upon
him. Besides, you are trying to usurp my reputation for being abusive
here. That's not allowed.
