Don't you people *ever* read the FAQ?  Let me quote for you.

>From Question 1:

> list with a piece of form mail explaining why.

Note the section on 'quoting' in particular.  Over the last few days,
people have been sending one line messages with about 3 pages of quoted
material, most of which isn't even relevant to what they are posting

And from question 6 (I believe):

> (4) If you still must make an offtopic posting to the list, at least
>     include an 'ObCircle:' section containing something related to
>     CircleMUD.

C'mon folks, this is a CircleMUD list.  Geez. (=

It ain't all *that* hard to remember to cut a bit of text here and there
and to make your posts worthwhile, is it now?

Erm... Yeah.  Whatever.
