You're speaking both sides of the argument, Gerald, because this whole
discussion started with "don't do it this way, or you could cause me to
automatically be subscribed to a mailing list". Yet you're saying it's okay
to fetch it, because evidently if you fetch it, nothing bad will happen.

So is it a good thing or a bad thing? You seem to be claiming both at the
same time.
