Microchip and piclist

It seems that my ISP filters messages with word 'sucks' on subject line so I
received no replies to my post :))

Anyway, Matt Pobursky said something about corporate policy that I would
like to comment. I think it's very simple. When I receive email from some
Microchip guy this is contained in that message:

Last two sentences can be used with every message sent by Microchip people
and noone will be fired or anything like that. Also, Yahoo keeps all of the
messages in its database so it's easy for lawers to check any message that
might cause some problem although I think it's not going to happen.

I think that this approach can solve problems with corporate policy that
Matt mentioned. Any lawers on piclist? We might use some comments on this :)
