I would have thought the contents of the message would have been enough to let people know it was not from me, but I was wrong. So I sign all my messages now. I can not "prove" that an unsigned message did not come from me, but I would hope an unsigned message posted to the list would cause people to take a closer look at it. While it is not as necessary for me to keep up a positive reputation on the Internet as it used to be, I still do not want other people saying things in my name. But that may not be important to others on the list, or they have other ways to handle it... Mikkel -- Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for thou art crunchy and taste good with Ketchup!
