I agree that it would nice if everyone posted from a standards-compliant 
email client and that companies didn't use ridiculous email disclaimers 
that only seem to annoy people.

However, it's not a perfect world and we all have to live with little 
annoyances. I can't believe that some of us are trying to hound someone 
off the mailing list because they don't fit in with our idea of what a 
geek should be.

I thought was an inclusive club. But what do I know?


p.s. I've just been browsing some list archives from 1998 - where I was 
top-posting from Outlook because it was the only mail client I was 
allowed to use. No-one objected then.
