Thank $DEITY that's still true.

I read that 'agreement' about 20 times before posting. I am definately
not worried about getting sued by him (whose name I am 'legally'
refrained from mentioning here; because, by reading his message, I
obviously agreed not to mention 'he who cannot be mentioned'; I thought
"Jahweh" had a patent on that...), but I found it to be utterly

My first reaction was "WTF? This is the stupidest disclaimer I have
*ever* seen.". Then I wondered whether Austrian people have a special
kind of humor. Then, I decided to ask.

Again, sorry for the noise; this time I couldn't resist.

Thanks and bye... Nico
