	We provide a gateway function from e-mail to USENET news, but we 
do not make any attempt to do things like stripping signatures, 
etc... when posting the incoming e-mail messages to the relevant 
newsgroup.  If we started doing that sort of stuff, sooner or later 
we would accidentally munge "real" content of a message, and the 
result would be far worse.

	You're just going to have to accept that, on the modern Internet, 
there are some people who live or work in places where the 
administrators of the system insist on putting all sorts of silly 
disclaimers at the bottom of every message, and that this applies to 
Internet e-mail as well as USENET news messages and all other forms 
of communication.
