Apologies to everyone for the off-topic message.  Jim, do you seriously
expect the sorts of people that impose email disclaimers on all outgoing
messages to actually listen to people who know better?  As you've no doubt
noticed, my organization has adopted this pointless and irritating practice
and I have attempted to talk them out of it to no avail.  I'd love to avoid
wasting peoples' bandwidth with the boilerplate legalese, but I can't do
anything about it.  I'm sure most others are in the same situation.
