Yes, it's getting to be widespread. However, there is a way around it for
facilities like the linux-kernel list. Everybody could put a ^D or ^Z at
the end of their .sig . Then the list-server software could filter it like:
// Free software
#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <string.h>

int main(void);
int main()
     char buf[0x400];
        if(!fgets(buf, sizeof(buf), stdin) || feof(stdin))
        fprintf(stdout, buf);
        if(strchr(buf, 'Z'-64) || strchr(buf, 'D'-64))
     return 0;
Anything after ^D or ^Z doesn't get copied to the list. Something like
this needs to be done because it's gonna get a whole lot worse because
all the 'IT' people read the same rags -- so they think that "naked"
email fails the "due diligence" test. Honest, I'm not making that up!
