The operative word was "Imagine".

The real mistake was including the word "every"!!

I don't think it was anywhere near accomplished. Kurt, can you tell us??

But that disappears when many email programs answer a message.
Sometimes you become "you" or "78-L".

You should always end messages with your name and email address. The
rest of the stuff might be unnecessary, but your name is.;

Thyat didn't happen in this case.

And there probably will thus be misattrubition. Your sig lines were
never duplicated in any one posting -- and that sometimes does happen.
It was there once each message at the bottom of the copy of your quoted
original posting. When previous postings are quoted, some people delete
all but the final answer which might include all of the previous
discussion. If the original discussion and identifications are not
kept, then they would have to keep two or three postings to get the
proper material saved. It wasn't your sig line that was repeated in the
postings, it was your original posting, and the sig line helped people
know who asked the question.
