We're lucky the filter allowed you to send the quoted content below. I'll
probably get arrested if I ever go to the U.S. again now. Or to India - my
former message was rejected by an inbound MailScan filter over there. "Bin
Laden" did however not cause any rejection, so now we know where the true
danger is.

Yes, corporate short-sightedness still amazes me every day. In order to
prevent employees from over-interest in dirty web surfing or emailing, they
should probably instead set up "free love" rooms where managers and
employees freely "mix up" and solve conflicts the Bonobo Way (instead of the
pervasive Chimpanzee or Baboon Way):


XML-DEV itself tends to be male-dominated however, I noticed, so we're off
to a bad start.
