I've been a Linker for many years, and am one of the foremost
consultants in my field[1]. I resent your implication that I would
engage in inappropriate self-promotion of my excellent (and affordable)
products and services.[1a]

That's exactly the sort of nonsense we've come to expect from you and
your coterie of panty-sniffing small-l liberal fellow travellers.[5] And
why do you want plaintext email? Verrrry suspicious.[6,7]

email unless, by dint of reading the mind of the sender and engaging in
time travel, you have determined before reading it that it is actually
intended for you. This disclaimer is naught but sound and fury,
signifying nothing, though with luck its vaguely threatening terms and
possibly its inordinate length will fool the gullible into paying it
more attention than it deserves and anyway, my lawyers have advised me
that leaving it off may in some parallel universe conceivably result in
me being liable for something, a chance I am not willing to take,
preferring the 100% chance of me being liable for the lawyers' fees.
