Google "net neutrality" .
You'll get 2,380,000 entries back. The first return has the

Surrender Monkey" Take a look at several other returns as

Sacred, no. Considerate, yes. I've given you before what I
consider an absolutely incontrovertible argument:
A: Because it messes up the order in which
people normally read text.

Right. Make the people you are writing to do the work. That
is the way to exert the most influence in your writing.

<ROTFL> What does HTML have to do with E-mail? (Jay Hart, don't
answer that question!) Like any sensible Linuxian, I use
mutt as my MUA, and have emacs as my editor, set in my .muttrc.
(Y'all have my permission to use vi! Arguing about top-posting
as bad enough; going back to vi-emacs wars means we'll soon
develop prehensile tails)
Best wishes to all!
