Yo! - glad I'm not the only one who feels this way. And such eloquent
expression (that may _sound_ like sarcasm, but I assure you it's not).

One _eensy_ prob, though, DK. It's generally not cool to publish mail
from other people without permission (maybe you got it?). 
Personally, I think anything given to you (including mail) is yours to 
do with as you wish, but apparently that's not the net.consensus 

Anyway, bitch away! I'm with you most of the way.
