This is off topic, but I hope the formatting of this paragraph of yours is
preserved, as it illustrates the problem when the sending end inserts hard
carriage returns into a message, the paragraphs come out all ragged.  IMHO,
it's better to let the receiving end work out where to wrap lines.

I have problems with those who indert hard CRs in their messages, it screws
up the formatting.  This message may demonstrate that..

Anyway, back to the birds, this message offered in the interest of problem
solving. :)
