## Fucking Email

I spent a day translating an article on SQM from Spanish to English.  The
email contained, as an aid to formatting, a line with a single dot, at the
start.

People as old as me may remember that a single dot is also how you terminate a
message using the primordial Unix mail command.  And it seems that somewhere,
in the layers of abstraction that current email is built from, that is still
interpreted as the end of the message.
