This guy at WEBER has been a nuisance, but maybe it was unintentional.  It
could well be that he didn't realize what his auto-responder would do, and
he will be embarassed about it upon his return.  If ignorance of a topic is
a call for abuse, then what is the purpose of "helpful" e-mail groups?

I do agree that he should be removed from the list until the 8th, and then
perhaps a welcome back is in order.  If the guy doesn't apologize, then
maybe he should be blasted, but for now he should receive the benefit of
the doubt, don't you think?

I didn't exactly enjoy downloading 15 of those messages on Saturday night,
either, but if I went on vacation, I'd hate to come back and find my box
bombed and/or an entire community of highly respected individuals royally
ticked at me.  In this case, I think ignorance is an excuse.  As long as he
apologizes, I guess.

Anyone know when Netscape, Big Bill (Microsoft), et al, will be actively
supporting style sheets?  I read the press release that came through last
week, but what does ASAP mean to these guys?

Thanks for any information.
