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...)

Regards,

David.
