Jesus Christ - lighten up....

Perhaps his corporate security policy forces him to put that on all his
outgoing mails? Perhaps there is an e-mail gateway in place that does if for
him whether he likes it or not? Perhaps he just likes it... I mean:

"Most people don't type their own logfiles;  but, what do I care?"

What's THAT about?

It's only a few bytes, for Pete's sake, and doesn't really do anyone any
harm, now does it?

NOTICE: You have taken *all* the confidential and/or proprietary
information contained in your email, some or all of which may be
legally privileged, and scattered it to the four corners of the
universe by posting it to a *widely* read maillist that is also
archived, and even more widely read, in several places.

If the content of your email was *really* intended for the named
recipient, you blew it, because the "named recipient" is probably
thousands of people.

No addressing or transmission error has mis-directed your email, but I
will suggest to the author that the attached footer is ridiculous, and
that you should know better.

I don't care if I'm not the named recipient of your email, I'm gonna
tell as many people about it as I can, and use, disclose, distribute,
copy, print, and *really really really* rely on your e-mail.

I will *not* immediately delete it; I'm gonna keep it forever and ever
and ever and you can't stop me.

Nya nya nya, neener neener neener...

Better yet, it would be appreciated (by me, at least..) if you (and
all others who do the same thing) could figure out how to transmit
email without that pretentious and over-blown footer attached to your

I mean, really now, you're posting to a maillist.

That footer is utterly irrelevant.

And, no, thank you. *
