So now you're becoming nitpicky and changing your story to justify your
aggression. Originally, you were saying that she was a spammer, which
made a bunch of bozos pile on. (*Odd* how that works.) Now you're saying
that instead of an error in commission, it was an error in omission.
There is a big difference and even if it was an error of omission on her
part, it wouldn't have made one bit of difference if Canonical's servers
don't care about SPF, assuming SPF worked the way she thought it did. I
think you owe Adele an apology or at the very least acknowledge that
there was no intent to spam as you so fervently alleged earlier in this
