Right. I'll adhere to the opinion expressed here by Tollef and
Enrico. Knowingly sending mails with a code known to crash on display
any Apple device displaying it might be fun (for some definition of
fun) when sending to your friends, but it is far from acceptable in
Debian lists, which are read by thousands of people, mirrored in
sites independent from us. 

It is clearly damaging. People might look in the mailing lists for
support. It is a hostile behaviour, and I also see it as a DMUP
