I don't know about anyone else, but I believe this kind of exchange
should not occur on a list dedicated to helping out the Newton community,
no matter what level of expertise you have. We have all kinds of folks
on this list who are more than willing to go the extra mile to help out
someone do almost anything with our little green friends. Diatribes
about keeping posts small are out of place. Certainly we can all try to
do that, some forget and some are using MIME attachments that take a one
line post and turn it into two pages of gibberish. A gentle reminder
from time to time is appropriate, not snotty remarks.
