   may I take this opportunity to remember everybody that this list is
   supposed to be read all over the world, and that therefore, it would
   be kind to avoid using slang, as P.I.T.A. or RTFM, thus avoiding the
   reader to have to consult a slang dictionnary every 2 mails, especially
   in a list with 200 posts per day.
