Did you work for Hayes in a previous life?

Are there still modems (after all these years) which don't implement
guard times before and after the "+++" and will disconnect whenver
someone reads this message? Or is this intended to cut off some random
poor bastard whose connection happens to pause for at least a second
before and after the "+++" characters?

If so, I think it's rather unfriendly of you to use such a .sig on a
co-operative mailing list.
