In addition to these excellent points, it's much easier for someone wishing
not to receive 2 emails on the same topic(seriously, what's the big deal?
 -- retorical ?) to handle this via procmail/filters/etc rather than placing
the burden on the community at large to accomodate the OP's wishes.

I'll do my best not to reply to the OP in future in this case, as I
personally don't wish to do their work for them and I'd hate to inconvience
them with multiple emails.
