Yeah, well, good thing none of us loose too much sleep over the 
perceptions other have regardless or not their claims have merit or not ;-)

Of course, I'm quick to fly off the handle when they lump this sort of 
stuff as 'security problems'.  If they don't regard spam in email as a 
'security problem' then they shouldn't do so here. 

Regardless, thanks a lot for the work.  I think if we do add this we 
should all spend a little time reviewing the code and giving it the due 
diliegence it deserves.
