I make the core dump comment more in jest, than anything else.  And, I
suspect, that most people probably couldn't do it without some reading,
first.

However, someone so daft as to send such notices to a list with several
hundred members does deserve finding their mailbox stuffed full of
several hundred replies.

[tim bigblack ~]$ uname -ipr
2.6.22.1-33.fc7 i686 i386

Using FC 4, 5, 6 & 7, plus CentOS 5.  Today, it's FC7.

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
