If you really _must_ plaster mailing lists with polemical politics
screeds, at least have the decency to not also indulge totally insane
quoting practices. You know better. Kindly do not do that again.
Also, the clueful way to call people's attention to magazine articles
that are fully available to the Internet-using public (such as the PC
World one you just bulk-pasted is to quote a couple of representative
paragraphs and the URL. Then, people can visit the URL if they please,
without your shoving the entire thing at them.
Doing what you just did is rude. It is also a violation of PCWorld
Communications, Inc.'s copyright. Accordingly, I really should expunge
that posting from the archives, which is a real nuisance. Do NOT ever
do that again.
