Presumably it was my use of the wrong MUA that stopped me from

However I will continue to use mutt, and cope with the frustrations of
those who ignore mailinglist guidelines the way I try to cope with rude

ignorant people, but will usually ignore rudeness, though I may feel
slightly less inclined to help them out.
