Well! :-) We have an arms race, then. I'll change my disclaimer
to read "This disclaimer supersedes all other disclaimers, even if
the other disclaimers claim otherwise. This is a NUCLEAR POWERED
disclaimer that will ATOMIZE all other disclaimers. This disclaimer
is TOP DOG."
/me goes to write AI code to search out and remove disclaimers...
(But actually, there is a serious point, because I'm sure it's quite
frequent that in an e-mail exchange, duelling and incompatible
disclaimers get added as the message travels around...)
