Interestingly enough, the 'OFF LIST" declaration has now populated
itself, which was what I meant in my original post. Personally, I feel
that subject line declarations like "OT", etc are just a wasted finger
exercise. It ranks up there with those totally useless and legally
unenforceable 'disclaimer' declarations. (see example below)

By the way, this was in no way directed at you, or anyone else in
particular. I was just curious as to why someone (anyone) would employ
this tactic.

In any case, it is time to retire this post.

Obviously, I am the idiot who sent it to you by mistake. Furthermore,
there is no way I can force you to delete it. Worse, by the time you
have reached this disclaimer you have all ready read the document.
Telling you to forget it would seem absurd. In any event, I have no
legal right to force you to take any action upon this email anyway.

This entire disclaimer is just a waste of everyone's time and
bandwidth. Therefore, let us just forget the whole thing and enjoy a
cold beer instead.
