Since it is Sunday and I am in a good mood, I will presume from your
languague and attitude that you are not an evil spammer but are a
young troll out for sport.  Gavin do you know what an smtp header is
this is part of yours from the mail you sent the list.

One thing I really like is the way it even tells me the build of your
mail client.  This of course is before I start using tools like whois
and dig to find out your networks contact details.  

The really frightening thing is I have only been a sys admin for a year
and consider myself to be nothing more than a newbie made good.  I don't
know who said it but there is a quote about there being no such thing as
privacy on the internet, I think this proves it.

I don't think I have broken any netiquette rules with this and I
apologies to all if I have but there is enough nastiness in this world
without it spread to some of the things I hold dear such as Free
Software and beautiful music.

Peace Jim
