Amen!  This has been a problem as for as long as I've been on mailing
lists (12 years).  In the beginning I made a number of mistakes. But
somehow, that was never one of them.

And call me crazy but anyone with the "brains" to tackle Linux (even for
the first time) should know better. OK, I guess not, but that's the way
I think. :-)

BTW, another peeve of mine are long sig files (You know, the ones that
exceed the "No more than 4 lines 'rule'"). ;-)
