RE: reachability testing

But for the
sanity and comfort of other list users, would it be too much to ask that
people with annoying tacked-on .sig's use a personal mail account when
posting to the list? I hear Google offers nice email accounts for a
reasonable price.

That often results in people sending html instead of a legal sig.

People who filter on such sigs are likely to filter on html too.

People who don't filter on sigs do filter on html.

Choose your evils carefully.
