Are you that proud of your signature so that you wish that everybody
can admire your hand writing style? Do you want us to order some pizza
or wooden coffins with your signature? Or should we all print it out
and put it on the ceiling above our beds so we can admire it when
falling asleep or waking up?
And I'm sure that many people with Dial-on-Demand Dial-Ups are really
thankfull that you take care that they are connected bye providing an

Sorry to sound a bit harsh but putting the signature under the mails
is the worst case of html mail I've ever seen.
