Ya, well, actually I use procmail to pipe the list mail through a very,
very advanced version of the eliza chatbot.  It parses and rearranges my
actual responses from as many as four or five years ago into plausible
replies based on keywords in the message.  That's why prices, hardware
descriptions, and commentary seem so outdated.  The amazing thing is
that nobody noticed until you did!
