Who wrote this part?  You've stripped the proper attributions.  I have
no idea who "Joey" is (there are at least 2 DDs who it could be).

It's impossible to carry on a discussion if you can't follow basic
email etiquette.  [ hint:  if you are complaining about a flame, using
a flame to do it is probably not the best solution ]

Finally, please do go read the archives.  The "we need to fix the
release mechanism and here's my s00per-d00per method to do it" thread
arrives here every few weeks.  It';s hard to believe anyone has
anything new to say at this point.
