I'm used to every little twit on earth writing a new broken vacation
spammer.  That's a given!  And I'm used to proprietary software
breaking accepted convention and protocol, since it gets to say "Who
are you to correct ME?  I forbid you to change my ways!"

And I guess I'm used to big proprietary software companies spreading
software that's Broken By Design (after all, begin-space-space tee hee

But somehow this just took me by surprise.  How could we have not
noticed before that the oh-so-widespread "Internet Mail Service" has
such a fundamentally pro-spam vacation feature?

We would do the world a great favor if we just deleted all        Nick Moffitt
software projects that described themselves as "frameworks".nick@teh.entar.net
A framework is just an unfinished program that nobody uses.
