One thing that always amuses me about such disclaimers, that I must not
allow myself to receive this message and if I do inadvertently receive
it, I must not read it, is that the disclaimer always appears at the END
of the message. This goes for faxed messages as well as e-mails. Are
people expected to scan the end of a message for legal restrictions
before reading the body?
