Please fix your email client. You should not be quoting people’s email

that's just silly. Anyone with access to this public list has your email
address when you posted.

The guy was just trying to help you with your issue, and you come across
as a dork.


Lee, this and many such lists expects the etiquette that Steven has
requested of Vince.  Elide the email address of the quoted person.  Many
clients offers to do this for you automatically, if you can't with yours
you should find one that does.


Cyg, I understand list etiquette but I'm referring to *human* etiquette. Steve asked for help, got help but rather than acknowledge it (and add a note at the bottom to *politely* tell Vince that he should find a way to sanitize email addresses out of his replies), he just jumps aggressively on the quoting issue (and confused things in the process because he, I assume, meant to say "email addresses" instead of "email directly", which doesn't parse well in english).

So I stand by my observation, Steve acted like a dork here.
