Heh.  Used to be you could Google for PCYMTNQREAIYR and get a link to
QuoteFix...  This doesn't seem to be happening now -- too many mentions of
the acronym itself.  Well, Googling for QuoteFix should do it.

I repeat my earlier request: would someone be willing to maintain a page
with a list of solutions for PCYMTNQREAIYR for various mailers?  If so,
I'll link to that page from the acronyms page.

Yes, as the acronyms page says, this is the choice of the person posting
the message.  The PCYMTNQREAIYR acronym really refers to reply lead-ins
like "joe <> wrote:" -- these don't give the original poster
any choice.

Huh?  I always post as Igor.  I *am* Igor. :-)

It probably doesn't matter for my email address, but configuring your
mailer will prevent you from doing this to people who would prefer to not
have their email addresses posted on the internet in raw form.

Yeah, security is lax these days, ain't it?

Huh?  *Everyone* on this list uses a strange name for it.  You should see
what conundrums DaveK comes up with (a new one for every post).  Besides,
have you ever looked at the Reply-To header on most messages coming from
this list?

> I'm afraid you've been cornered.

You can do that on the Internet?  I thought it had no boundaries (thus no
walls, thus no corners)...  You learn something new every day...

Besides, this thread has not even mentioned hippos.  How can you have a
cygwin-talk thread with no hippos?  This is outrageous!  So, here's the
obligatory mention of hippos: LOOK OUT, THERE'S A HIPPO BEHIND YOU!
