I do limit the size of messages, but it's a fine balance
between limiting abuse and preventing people from doing
their jobs.

I realize that M$ is not the entire problem. But bloatware
does seem to produce bloated files. I think that powerpoint
is the biggest pile of poo when it comes to this. Let the
user take a 2400 X 2400 tiff and resize it to 120 X 120.
Who cares if the presentation is 50000 times bigger than it
should be.

Sorry, I'll quit venting now :-)
