Ah, but perhaps this is meta-jamming. The sig passes along the jamming meme to
other people, at the expense of its own individual efficacy. What I should
really do is debug that Echelon-jamming Perl script I sent out earlier and
put a link to that into my sig.

Btw, sometimes I forget to cut the sig out in my professional correspondence,
and I wouldn't want some faculty member or IT manager who never met me to
assume I'm some kind of a violent paranoid terrorist. So the Echelon URL
is there to kind of cover my butt. :-)
