This question is too open-ended to have any simple answer.  Please be

Disclaimers like this are a great way to get your mail ignored
completely.  Now I know and you know that this threat isn't worth
the electrons it's written on, but why should I respond to someone
whose corporate lawyers are so hostile to the outside world?
