	I refuse to allow spammers this victory. My machines are fully
 capable members of the internet, and I deliver my own email. My
 philosophy is that if people drop mail from me due to incompetence
 (since setting up machines to classify email from me as spam is
 indeed a misconfiguration), then I have no real desire to impose my
 musings on them. 

I always had a repulsive need to be something more than human. David
