Re: FW: Minimum prefix length?

Whilst we're sidetracking...

I took some counsel on this not so long ago to see whether these were just 
novelty signatures or if they were real legal stuff. Turns out they could 
actually be used legally, interesting I thought.

Howevers its curious that signatures such as this claiming to be confidential 
are posted to a list which is very much public and archived in several public 
websites.. not sure how right it is to autoappend them to all your mails as well 
as the private ones!
