proasp_codeclinic thread: Large code problem


Message #1 by Ian Barker <Ian.Barker@b...> on Mon, 9 Apr 2001 08:31:18 +0100
Sorry folks, my sarcasm went unnoticed. Next time I'll have to
make it more pointed. Yesterday a 143Kb email was dropped
in my inbox, most of it code dumps from people who can't be bothered
to fix their own.

The message was to the moderator ('> To Moderator:') and wasn't
meant to get through to the list..

I would have thought that the mention of 40Mb of code + a smiley
would have alerted you all to the fact my request _wasn't_ genuine,
and then there's my last comment... :

> 143Kb of code in the list is a wee bit excessive...

(and if you must reply to the digest please don't send it all! - moderator)
