'highly likely' seb? wtf. that bad an email has happened once. in 38 months and over 200,000 email messages. i realize you're pissed, and i'm sorry about that, but you don't get *any* other spam email like that, at all?? i don't really feel like responding to the rest of this atm, sorry. i am working on new features if i could ever drop out of my email client and back into my editor.
