Sorry if I'm interrupting "important stuff", but sending this to an
open-source mailing list simply makes absolutely no sense at all:

Consider yourself notified.

I've seen this before and the answer was "yes, sorry, it's company policy,
can't get rid of it." It bugs me nevertheless.

It seems to me that, with a mail footer like this, your company policy is
incompatible with contributing to dev@ discussions, which should be
addressed. A private mail account could be used, for example.

Couldn't this actually be causing a legal nightmare at some point?
