Is this some kind of behaviorist experiment? What's my prize?

HELLPPP!! I'm confused! When he wrote "please include this line", did he mean the line of text that says "please include this line", or was he referring to the line of dashes he used to separate off that line of text?

One would guess that if he meant the line of dashes, he would have written "the above line" instead of "this line", and that "this line" refers to itself. Unless "this line" refers to a one-dimensional shape possessing start and end points, rather than a series of glyphs (i.e. letters, etc) laid out 'in a line'. Some sort of indication seems to be called for. :-)

As to */why/* that phrase was in his e-mail, maybe the hippos know.

Not to be used as a flotation device.
