Oh shit, Oh well, I use a friend's email address anyways so he'll be dubbed
the zoolophilliac coprophile instead. :)

alt.extropians isn't really contravercial, I just don't want to keep
changing free agent between two different information sets depending on the
newsgroup. Do you know how much time that would take if I had to change my
email address, restart free agent and then access and post to a newsgroup?
Because at least with the 16bit version of Free Agent, when you alter a
setting, you need to restart free agent in order for the setting to take effect.
