Thanks, but no need to be sorry ...:)

It *was* SPAM according to the rules - as far as they were
understandable - that Thomas Viehmann was presenting (see my first
mail in this thread). So he acted fully rightly. The point is, that

** 1

Their SPAM rules, as hinted by T. Viehmann, obviously are completely
nuts. T. Viehmann didn't do anything else than quoting and
implementing them: these rules - wild guess - were not set up by him
alone, but by quite a few more people, aka list-admins, or who ever

** 2

Every single of these admins is free to try to change sick rules, or
quit loudly, if there's no chances left. 

Debian guys obviously have quite some problems nowadays. I don't
understand fully why, except that I can't solve them, and I refuse to
do so, if I even have to remove some lousy sig to make sure an email
makes it to some mailing list. That'd be too weird, even for me ... :)

Come on: no solution has to be found for me - I'm fine. It's Debian
guys - at least in important areas - who seem to be grounded rather
hardly. They can solve their probs .. :) .. So have a look at them,
not at me.

Perhaps some of these guys simply heard this Winehouse song too often,
and even worse, thought it were all real instead of some - admittedly
superb - fiction: 

"They try to make me go to rehab, and I say no - no - no .." ..

But Thanks ... :)

Good luck again
Queen Amy ...
