It's not hostility, I thought we were having a forthright discussion amongst friends.

Although looking at some of the messages outside of this thread, there seemed to be a them/us separation; aiming ire at Ferenc for pointing out that sending 57,000 emails was a fairly Bad Idea (whether for server load, netiquette or plain common sense). Not his fault no-one thought about it before, is it?

Where's all this hostility coming from? Read all of my messages.

You've just pissed me off for today, thanks. I'm done with this thread.
