Please fix this!

James is (for good reasons) posting via Google, which ingeniously strips
off the space at the end of the signature delimiter.

The problem with Google: just like Microsoft there seems to be a
high-level management decision to gather as much feedback as possible,
countered by low-level management decisions to sabotage that so that it
looks like it's in place, but actually impossible for anyone to report
anything (you're redirected to irrelevant places, submit buttons don't
work, nothing is actually received, no relevant category is listed, no
mail address available, and so on ad nauseam).

Hence, Google Earth places Norway in Sweden, Google Groups strips off
significant spaces, and so on and so forth, and even though thousands
and tens of thousands /try/ to report this, Google's as unwise as ever
about its failings. The price of becoming a behemoth company, and what
I'm speculating is probably the reason: lying cheating weasels are
attracted like moths to a flame, and form the lower management echelons.
  Oh, sorry, this' off-topic in clc++m, but it sure felt good to get
that off my chest!

A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is it such a bad thing?
A: Top-posting.
Q: What is the most annoying thing on usenet and in e-mail?
