Ray's Xorg.0.log post was 38kb. His grub.cfg post was 26kb. I consider both
much too long to wade through in email archive searches. Help posts of under
10kb are nearly always more than sufficient.

Of course what any subscriber thinks doesn't really matter. Whatever a list's
rules permit is technically OK, even to including binary attachments, which I
usually delete unread, often even when sent from people in my address book.
