Ok.  Let me clarify.  I didn't actually read the disclaimer.  In my
addled mind I thought "notify the sender" meant notify the sender's
company.  I would never advocate complaining to some hapless victim of a
company policy.  Yes, I wasn't thinking clearly, no, I am not back

I was COMPLETELY WRONG to have implied that the *sender* should be
contacted and I, again, apologize.

Where in the world is this coming from?  Did you just wake up this morning
and decide you were going to be a jerk?

I did indicate that I was reconsidering implementing Igor's suggestion
in another message.  Maybe you missed it.  So, once again I must
acknowledge the fact that I wasn't entirely clear.  I was wrong.
Whatever you like.  I am now again thinking about ways to do this.

Hmm.  I'm sure this is one of those self-deprecating attempts at humor;
using profanity to call someone juvenile.  Tastes in humor vary widely,
I guess.

It's rather "ironic" that you have so many important things to worry
about but you still take time out of your busy schedule for name
calling.  I guess that must be pretty high up on your priority list.
