"Pushing hard" might be a bit strong, but, yes, I made the suggestion.

Nope, I use no automation for this list. For those that feel they *must*
munge, it'd be best to at least employ something with readability and
copy/paste-friendliness.  spam-MUNGEDdomain.com does neither for me. :-)

Actually, I expected a *lot* more apathy on this topic. In truth, *I'm*
a lot more apathetic to this than this thread would suggest :-)

;-) I saw it, but, honestly, I don't really care *how* domains are
munged. I'd just rather they not be munged at all for this list. :-)
