Re: cygwin rsync bug with windows shares


I think I understood your meaning, and I'm not in favor of placing any blame on the posters in this matter. As I mentioned in my earlier reply to David Sheridan, I assumed from the beginning that he had no control over that disclaimer.

I was really curious if Chris has a way of detecting and filtering out the disclaimer text itself, leaving the message content intact, which is what his single-sentence posting seemed to suggest he was *so* tempted to do.

Umm, Randall, I think you've missed the point of my post.  I claimed that
people should not be blamed for something they have no control over, and
suggested a means of giving them the control.  It *must* require
cooperation from the sender.  Should they choose to ignore this control,
they'll deserve every ounce of abuse they get.  Please do not deprive the
members of this list from the opportunity to be rightfully mean! ;-)

Perhaps when (and if) this is implemented, it could be added to the FAQ,
so people won't be able to (validly) complain that this is not documented
anywhere.  Then, along with the abuse, we could point them to the FAQ. :-)
