I'll take it as a compliment that you think better of me than I
actually am :-)
On the other hand I wasn't really chastising anybody. Just pointing
out that the subscriber who makes use of a tool is not necessarily the
one who should be thought badly of (i.e. rather than the tool's
author). And mainly I was trying to find a way to seque into the
question about a tester for authors of autoresponders. I happen to be
contemplating implementing one or more such things as companions to a
delivery tool, and I even though I think I know some things about how
they ought to operate, I just know I am going to make at least one
blunder along the way.
