Oh please go away. Would you rather see lkml be as ridden with spam as
other lists? You have the right to use a commercial product, and you may
also exercise your right to choose a _bad_ one.

Besides, crap like the above doesn't carry much weight. Especially not
from someone who rarely contributes anything but noise on the list. No
time for whiners, to the kill file you go.
