Neil, how much time did you spend on that email?

Also, as a gentoo user I consider my computing powers to be a cut above the
Mandriva, Red Hat, W.I.M.P.S And as fellow gentoo users, I consider all of
you to be in that same class. Not bragging, but just stating the obvious.
Many of us have been using Gentoo since it came in a 32MB tar ball. From
that we defined and deployed a very usable operating system. So why is that
every week we find a Subscriber who can't get themselves take off a mailing

I administer a small network of maybe a hundred users or so. Even they can
do it and they don't even know their using linux!!!!!!!!
