>>>so, on top of being sysadmin for linux.ie, and working for a living, you
want colm to maintain
a patch to mailman to do this? (or do you want a filter before it gets
into mailman, and have a chain
of about 25 programs before mailman even gets to the pictures).
Long sigs aren't nice, but most people don't have them. Usually when
someone is asked nicely,
they can find a way around it (webmail, personal email through
eircom.net, whatever). If some
people can't manage that, then they're welcome to either not post or
post with the understanding that
they may be annoying some people.
Personally, I don't see a solution that can be picked that won't cause
someone to get upset.. oh look,
compromise.. nasty word that :)
