I think this is a good idea. Not only would it cut down on the spam,
but it could also eliminate the horribly redundant quoting of messages,
digest "how to" blurbs at the ends of messages, and embedded HTML which
simply doesn't "work" for plain-text mail readers.

I hate to do it, but other interests are calling (besides, I'll keep
the Corsair II): I am offering for trade my Scout (Model 555), the
matching #937 power supply, band modules for 30, 40, and 80 meters,
manual, power cords (etc). Everything is in absolutely perfect
condition, both mechanically and cosmetically. I don't use the term
"mint" only because it's so over-used. I believe the gear is all
approximately 1 or 2 years old (I can check on this); I'm the original
owner of it all.
In trade (this may be a long shot), I am looking for large-format
photography gear (camera, lens, in 4x5 or 8x10 inch format). In
particular, lenses would be great.
