I don't know about the rest of you, but I find Guy's intolerance of
Garret's intolerance intolerable. (If you kids wanna throw stones,
please take it off-list.)

ObTWL: I think that the message confirmation thingy will only create
more clutter and delays for the folks on the list. This added
hassle, IMHO, is not worth the "locking out" of these fake messages.

Anyhoo, I think we have avoided any flame baits and misquotes rather
nicely.

Take care,

BTW, Guy, it's DILLIGAF.
