Please refrain from using this type of language.

FYI, the cygwin mailing list does not deal with complaints about infrastructure issues.  If you feel the need to complain
about this then send email to the overseers mailing list at  You are going to need to be specific, about what you
are griping about, however, if you don't want to come across as
something other than a complainer.

For instance, you are asking to have your email address removed while
sending from an email address which could not possibly have existed in
the 1999 time period.  So, even if I was inclined to help you, I have no
way of figuring out what you are talking about.

And, pragmatically speaking, some politeness would probably help if you
are suggesting that someone should do something and want your suggestion
to be viewed in a light that would be conducive to having someone help
