You [Amit Rekhi] either do not read what I post to you, or do not care
about me and the other members of this list or are unable to control what
your mailer emits. I hope it is the latter. If you are unable to control a
mailer you are going to find it difficult to participate effectively in XML
I don't like writing this sort of message, but I cannot allow this sort of
pollution on XML-DEV. I hope you understand the term "yellow card" - i.e.
if you continue with this we shall have no option but to unsubscribe you. I
am sure it won't come to that. There are lots of place on the WWW where you
can find out about mailers (*NOT* XML-DEV).
