Everyone gets funny email from someone. Some of us get funny

essay doesn't belong here, I'll remove it and replace it with
a pointer to a legitimate copy. Please don't let that stop you
from telling me. I know I'd be annoyed to find my work
republished with my name or copyright notice filed off,
or published someplace I didn't give permission, and what
