  Such is your choice.  Unfortunately, it has rather dramatic consequences,
  which I _beg_ you to keep to yourself instead of infesting the forum.  OK?
  Guide to non-spammers: If you want to send me a business proposal, please be
  specific and do not put "business proposal" in the Subject header.  If it is
  urgent, do not use the word "urgent".  If you need an immediate answer, give
  me a reason, do not shout "for your immediate attention".  Thank you.
