Re: Please be careful with dashes

It should be noted that a small number of dashes on the left margin,
before the signature file, is considered "correct" software behavior
on the Internet, and many mail programs (including Netscape)
automatically add them.  So any software that's dying because of
dashes in the signature is incorrect, and ignoring a widely-used
informal standard.

By "beauty," I mean that which seems complete.
Obversely, that the incomplete, or the mutilated, is the ugly.
