The three line trailer on the bottom of messages originating from
Juno mail does not bother me nearly as much as the people who 
send huge HTML and MIME attachments to the entire mailing list.
This stuff is fine for 1 to 1 E-mail to your friends when you 
know that they can decode the message, but there are STILL a lot
of people on Amsat-bb using shell accounts and other mail systems
for whom the attachments are merely a lot of gibberish. Please
have some consideration for them, and post only messages that
everybody on the BB can read.
