I suggest you re-read my messages. I never asked anyone to do anything. I
made *an offer* to people whose preferences are similar to my own.

The interpretation that my original post was a request for anyone to take
action is not supported by the actual text of the message. That
interpretation is based on data that exists only in your mind.

>why should all of us need to install/edit/admin procmail to please you?

I described my dislikes as a lead-in for those with similar tastes, not as
part of a request that other people take some action. Re-read carefully.
You will not find a single request to take action anywhere in my original
post.

>THAT is why I said you were on the wrong list
>you need to be on the "I'd Like to Change The World" list

Again, re-read carefully.

>nuff beating on that poor ol ded horse

A strange sentiment given your ad hominiem attacks, insults, sarcasm, and
otherwise emotional and negative response to my original offer of help.
