Holy huge-ass sig, batman!

I like a good political quote as much as the next person, but not in
other people's sigs.  There's a reason slrn bitches at me if I use a sig
larger than 4 lines.

Unless you need to share ultra-sensitive super-spy stuff with me, please
don't email me directly.  I will most likely see your post before I read
your mail, anyway.
