Re: The "Offender" replies....
I got one of the emails, but it didn't bother me; I didn't even notice there
were any gifs attached. I replied to the email and it was done, actually much
more quickly than if I had started a flame thread against you. I actually hate
flame threads MUCH more than I dislike automatic anti-spam emails (and I do
acknowledge that this is an anti-flame flame email). People expend so much
effort condemning you that they end up being far worse. Come on, calling for
you to be kicked off the list for a simple message? Or resending the offending
message to the entire list?? How is that not 100x as annoying?
Lighten up, guys.
