...or if you do decide to quote the digest to get your posting thrown out,
make sure to quote the entire BOTTOM of the digest. :) I think the filter
Cynthia put in checks to see if you've quoted the last line that normally
inserted (it was my suggestion, so blame me that it's not 100% foolproof).
This doesn't guard against someone quoting only the TOP 99% (which I think
is what Scott did). Ah well.
