I think it's obnoxious too. The legal disclaimer type are worthless and
advertising? I switched news providers because they were advertising in
Some one else mentioned the cruft building up in replies and so on. My
opinion is that it's a problem between chair and keyboard. However, if
you do go ahead with your blurb, due to PHB or whatever, you could write a
little function to strip instances out of messages by delimiting the start
and end of your blurb. Starting with sigdashes "-- " and ending with the
reverse " --" would seem to be fairly unique and unlikely to colide with
any legitamate content. A small regex that matched that starting and
ending marks with some of the content would seem to be reliable.
A useful side effect would be that good mailreaders can be configured to
"strip from sigdashes" on reply, and even better, "strip from sigdashes"
on view. :)
