I completely agree with you on this subject Terry.  The whole approach
is extremely misguided and discourteous, especially in the light of this
being about information that should have been welcomed by Edward.

I'm using TMDA right now, which is remotely similar but doesn't
require the "reason", just a real mailbox and a living person or
an autoresponder...  even so, this whole thing is starting to make
me rethink even that approach.
