Nick,

although I do sympathise with your frustration it is virtually impossible for people to get their BOFH to change anything. Corporate email disclaimers are notoriously vague and don't apply in any common-sense meaning to public mailing lists but that doesn't, IMHO, give you license to abuse people over something that is patently beyond their control. I was going to reply to you personally over this but seeing as you have already put someone off using this list with your comments I thought I should post publicly. 

Please self-moderate and be aware that not everyone wants to hear your pet rants in such crude terminology. 

Julian
