My apologies.  The original question containing a 1:29 SNR was by Mike
Kenny, but the followup I was replying to was by Matthew Warren. 
However, Matthew's reply coincidently contained a good 25 lines of
useless disclaimer spam as well, which is why it appeared to be the same
person to my quick skimming.

That's a great link.  I cannot understand what compels people to use
these things.  Actually that's not true, I can imagine the clueless
managerial types dictating a "better safe than sorry" policy, even
though the disclaimer is meaningless at best and ridiculous at worst.

What ever happened to the internet where netiquette actually meant
anything?  You know, that whole thing about keeping signatures to less
than 4 lines x 72 chars, not quoting entire messages, not sending HTML
email to public lists, and so on?
