I'm tellin' you guys, Cyppy is the solution to this and all other problems. He
could have his own list, cyppy@. He could be a perl script that regex's the
incoming mail, eg. ".*it[[:space:]]worked[[:space:]]in[[:space:]]B20.*", and
send back an answer straight from the FAQ along with an autographed copy of that
ASCII rendition of himself. Or even an honest-to-God JPG if they send HTML.
