How stupid is this? Repeated irrelevant advertising as well as a stupid disclaimer. YOUR TAXES AT WORK!

(This came from a user who was having problems receiving a message from a government researcher, because the 4MB message was too big for the poor GSI email system. I also loved the X.400 failure report, which I shall not reproduce here for privacy reasons.)

I quite often get ones with the delightfully illiterate trailer,

"For latest news and information from [DEPARTMENT] visit: [URL of DEPARTMENT]
Help save paper - Do you need to print this email"

-- the last line is very revealing, I think.
