Apparently we have a number of new subscribers as of yet unacquainted with the proper list netiquette. It is considered common practice to include the minimal amount of lines (with proper attribution, of course) neccessary to follow the thread. ASCII wastelands (verbatim post citations) in form of page-long posts with the only content cargo being naughty one-liners at the bottom are 1) intensely frowned upon at first occurence 2) mercilessly killfiled thereafter, unless the offenders mend their ways soonest. (The only exception of this rule is Hara Ra, for obvious reasons).

So: if you want to be heard, change your style. If not, prepare to meet thy (silent) doom in the guise of a killer procmail script.
(It might be actually a good idea of making a custom of publicly
posting these periodically, as a kind of an anti-top-ten).
