Good point.  I do reject some subjects like that in the main cygwin list
but I hadn't done so here.

I have now, though.  However, if people think that's too harsh, I'll
remove that restriction.

I always wonder if people who post subjects like that also go into the
bank, hand their checks to the teller and say "Bank!".  Or if they go to
the auto shop to get their car fixed and open the discussion by pointing
and saying "Car!"
