Actually, I believe next on your agenda is fixing your quoting habits.
The above text, in your post, was followed by no fewer than 1018 lines
of quoted text, comprising the full text of sixteen previous (and highly
miscellaneous) list posts.
There are _many_ reasons not to use the corporate-moron style of quoting
complete prior message threads at the end of your posts. You've just
graphically illustrated the point, afresh.
Now, it's rather likely that this is the default quoting mode of your
mail reading software. CHANGE IT. NOW. Thank you.
