Oh, I'm not back-pedalling!  Quite the opposite!  I thought through my
actions very carefully and proceeded with very deliberate purpose!  I'd
do it all again (though maybe with about half the content -- two parts
would proabably have been suffient to get the point across with
sufficient irony; I just couldn't be bothered to pre-test it to see how
many parts it would be broken down into by my MUA).

I think you're just mad because you haven't a clue what my message was
all about....  don't be such a sore loser!

I've no doubt!  ;-)

Oddly I've only received complaints (well, two complaints total,
including yours) from people running mailers which can't seem to decode
a set of very standard MIME messages....

Perhaps you should try finding a better MUA (or at least read the MIME
standard again and try to understand why you're looking very lame here...).

Good for you -- sorry you can't get my little joke in its entirety.
Too bad you didn't delete your reply before you sent it too!  ;-)
E-mail me privately if you really do want to see what it was all about....

I still think it's about the funniest thing I've seen in months!  ;-)
