What's wrong with babies having candy??
(Regarding express checkout lines, I was standing in one recently and two
women behind me were discussing some incident which, apparently, had been
in the newspapers recently, in which someone actually _shot_ someone who
was ahead of them in one of these express checkout lines and who had too
many items. No... it wasn't me. :-)

I often wonder that exact thing. I especially wonder about it each time
some lout of a list admin allows me to be forge-subscribed to a non-
confirming mailing list he/she is running.

Actually, it takes the cooperation of at least _two_ puerile jerks to get
one's self forge-subscribed onto a non-confirming mailing list... the net-
hooligan who does the subscription forging, _and_ also at least one bone-
headed list admin who sets up a mailing list without the foggiest idea of
how to actually run one properly.

If you are one of the innumerable boneheads who is running a mailing list
whose subscription protocol fails to include an requirement for affirmative
reply/confirmation on (alleged) new subscription requests, then by all means,
please *DO* put me on your reject list. I would appreciate it greatly. In
fact please put all of the monkeys.com and e-scrub.com domains on your reject
lists. I and my domains get enough spam as it is. Thanks.
