You reply a lot of messages on this list, but somehow I never see anything
written by you in the posts.
Do you use some invisible ink ?
Do others see anything written, or is there something wrong with my mail
client ?
or is there some sort of a bug/feature/virus in your mail client which
automatically replies every mail you get in your account ?
am I missing something ?
