Gentlemen! Please stop!

I would say this -- Post in whatever format you feel like posting in. Everyone 
else who does not like that format is free to ignore or answer the poster. If 
everyone ignores it, they will change or move on. If someone answers them, 
they will be helped, and probably still move on.

These d!@k slapping threads get boring real fast, and the iPhone user is 
running up his cell time. Maybe you both can go on a skype call and do some 
real shouting!  ;-P

MailScanner is like deodorant...
You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
