>>Austin, can you put a disclaimer disclaimer in your sig?
OK - I was going to suggest this, but it seemed too abstruse, but Nick's
suggestion has inspired me - what about if those who are stuck with
stupid disclaimers were to add a line to their sigs like
--ILUG MESSAGE ENDS--
or some such and our processsing could then strip that line and all
following lines before it adds the ILUG bit? I initially thought of
suggesting an extra header like
or somesuch but many people may be using mail clients which don't easily
allow adding arbitrary headers.
Of course I realise that there will be those who say that we have no
right to do that. If we were to decide to do this, then we could
advertise that fact, and anyone who added the --ILUG MESSAGE ENDS-- line
would be obviously inviting us to trim his message at that point.
