You're expected to send mails to a technical list in a manner such that
it shouldn't matter who any of the participants may or may not be
employed by or what other interests they may have.  That was the primary
point of both my and Russ's messages and one which you appear to be
continuing to miss.

If it's still not clear, then I give up.  I have more constructive
things to spend my time on, and I'm sure most other readers of the list
do too.

-1, trolling.  (If it wasn't intentional, you may wish to research the
history of posters attempting to justify things by invoking SC4.)
