My apologies, to all the many people who called my attention to this
error. I have an 'advertiser' script that handles these situations, and 
checking for inordinate length was a feature I neglected to think of.

I don't think of it as net-cop, by the way: this person's sys-op has
the option to do anything they want, or nothing. I do object to
the drolly succint pot->kettle etc business. I fear that you have 
crafted a catchy epigram, at the expense of valid metaphor, and the 
reality of the situation. But form over function, hey?
