Heck, my disclaimer states:
"If you are not the intended recipient, please do not read, ..."

at the end of the message.


To bring this round to a technical discussion, perhaps someone could
configure the Techwr-l listserv to strip out predefined disclaimers? Could
probably even analyse posts automatically to identify repeating

Certainly a good chunk of space could be saved in the archives if both the
miscellaneous disclaimers and Techwr-l generated footers were stripped
