Everyone! Standardize on this format for sigs!

Makes it easier to create a filter to strip it out of text mail...
Uhm...wasn't that the idea from the ancient RFCs?

Why is it that people in the computer industry feel the need to be
obnoxious at the drop of a hat? I don't _remember_ making an effort to
offend you...

Wow, I didn't intend for it to be a flame at you. I meant it as an
honest yet sarcastic way of saying that if people stuck to the
standards, you wouldn't have people getting bent out of shape because of
people thumbing their noses at "standards" and a simple filter could be
implemented for manipulating information into a format that is suited
for YOUR personal preference without imposing things on everyone else on
the crowd. I thought that the two lines would summarize that a lot more
easily than this long-winded explanation. But if you want to take it as
a personal attack, I can't really stop you.

Ah; ok. It's just that this isn't the first time that
"angrykeyboarder" has gone out of his way to be offended by the word
"Christ" in my signature...but no harm- no foul.

But I get your point; much like when a lot of Christians were
screaming "No making a .XXX domain!" I was saying "PLEASE DO!" It's
just so much easier to filter them out, if they're all in one domain!


Heck, these guys are entrepanuers; tell'em they can no longer have
.com, .net or .org and they'll pool money to buy some nation's unused
country-code domain. (Remeber .tv?) We should legalize spam for the
same reason....and then put all of them into .spam, and if they're
caught using anything else, we rip their heads off.

If nothing else, it feels good to think about... ;>
