learn not to quote entire messages pointlessly. 

What actually initially raised my pique was that, first, Grant
cross-forwarded your entire post from sf-lug to here, and _then_ you
quoted in reply -- for no apparent reason -- Grant's entire forward of
your post, So, we got to slog through your initial post _twice_ in quick
succession, along with your minor commentary on the forwarding of your

I was already, generally, not happy with the bad habit several people
have of forwarding every bloody announcement across all possible Linux
mailing lists.  It doesn't help that it was of a (charity) event
haplessly announced on short notice.  But then also having to read the
whole thing multiple times on _this_ mailing list -- for no better reason
than your not bothering to snip quoted text in GMail -- is a bit much.

Yes, we know that GMail offers you no alternative to corporate-moron-style 
quoting.  That's not the point.  The point is that you nonetheless remain
responsible for removing pointless quotation before posting, and you
keep not bothering.  It's a clipboard operation, for heaven's sake!
It's not like it's even difficult!
