	Actually, you've never convinced me of this, or even put forward any
coherent arguments. You said something unreadable about multipart mime and
forwarded messages, but that was all.

	I considered pointing this out in your last email on the subject, but
honestly, the whole thing was flamebait. There was only the one attempt at
an actual refutation of my position, and that I was unable to understand
after several attempts. The relevant portion is below for your reference. If
you'd care to elaborate I'm keen to know what you meant to say.
