Hmm, and here I am with my 8-line signature...

Seriously, though, I'm a firm believer in freedom of speech.  If people
*want* to include 50-line disclaimers in their signature (and take the
resulting abuse), I don't think we have the right to stop them.  I was
proposing a way for people to get rid of the annoying things required by
company policy that they *don't* want in their messages (and currently
have no way to remove).
