Ha ha ha.  Michael Simms, the guy that started the long flame fest, has
previously expressed his views in favour of this subject very vocally on
this very list.

See http://shoe.bocks.com/nlug/2004-May/5148.html for another of his
classic flames along with http://shoe.bocks.com/nlug/2004-May/5175.html

Personally I hate them as they only inconvenience the sender of mail and
push all the effort there.
