STOP IT! *sigh*

Look, I can understand if you all don't like how he posts.  However
there is -no- need to send these types of e-mails to the -list- itself.

If you feel this strong about his bad etiquette then e-mail him
directly.  Be polite, explain to him why it's a Bad Thing(tm).  If
enough people do this, i'm sure he will change his behaviour.

..just keep these types of e-mail off the list, it adds no useless
information to the archives, wastes our overall bandwidth and time
required to read and delete this post/thread.
