But "user agent" does not equal "input methods".

Even if you solve the problem with input methods, you still may

generated content, you still have to deal with "old" content. Just
solving it in "input methods" does not solve anything.

The 'net used to be run by smart people; now many sites are run by
idiots. So SAD... (Sites that do spam filtering on mails sent to the
abuse contact need to be cut off the net...)
