And so the Internet schisms into 100,000 incompatible fiefdoms, all with
different [conflicting] rules and requirements and procedures. One requires
the removal info in the header, another requires it in the footer, another
requires the "List-*" headers another forbids it, one blocks all messages that
are "Precedence: bulk" another requires that all mailing lists use "Precedence:
bulk", and so it goes... sigh... What a wonderful world it will be....
