I used to have such a filter in place at previous job, but was ordered by
higher-ups to remove it. Still, such filters are, to my knowledge, fairly
uncommon. You are correct, though, that they are a polite thing to do.
Incidentally, I did get my example backwards. Sincerest apologies and
thanks to all who noticed; I'll try to proofread better next time.
It could be worse; I could insult the people who correct my mistakes. 8^)
