Subject: unsubscribe or-talk

and a few lines later,

X-To-Get-Off-This-List: mail majordomo@xxxxxxxx, body unsubscribe or-talk

Apparently, the illiterate still manage to learn how to subscribe
to mailing lists (perhaps their kids show them how?), though to what
purpose is anyone's guess.

One of the things I love about being an IT Professional is, in general, being really smart. One of the things I hate about being an IT Professional is when the "really smart" look down their nose at someone who apparently can't do something simple.

USENET from 1992 is pretty much finished and I would personally be gratified, not that it matters, if you just explained the proper command to the guy instead of proving to me, and everyone else, that indeed you have mastered Majordomo.

I, for one, wasn't impressed. There's probably a good amount of "user class" subscriptions to this list. Try to remember that those folks actually get attention from women, and have what we, the IT People, only dream of: Lives.

   Yes, I've had a bad day. But please... be nice.
