Stupidity is it's own virtue.
If people, who are afraid of fat electrons crowding their email-box,
don't bother to _read_the_manual_ that's their fault. There's a
wonderful tool called the "filter", that can protect these virtual
innocents from themselves. Unfortunately, no such device exists
for _real_mail_. If they don't want email from certain individuals,
then they can put those people into the filter and ignore them
as blissfully as they ignore reality itself.
Just my $0.02 worth.
