Well, it does work for me rather well, except for (ironically) family
members who appear too dumb to read a message... But I'm sure we all have
those types.

Well, being in the same boat, I simply set up a rule/filter which responds
to TMDA challenges with an automatic response, and files the
challenge/response/confirmation away. No interaction needed on my part, and
the lines of communication remain open. Very simple, really.

No, thanks, I get the occasional negative response to TMDA (the vast
majority of respondents like it), so I'm always curious why, in fact,
certain folks dislike it.

Just as an aside - your response, by the way, confirmed that you have seen
and acknowledged the challenge, and responding to the challenge probably
took less than this thread :-)  Either way, I'm happy that you responded
publicly, as this is information that might help others as well.

LOL! 'Reply All' is my favorite activity to family members that spam me with
junk/hoaxes -- just to berate them. One public humiliation is normally all
it takes to make those stop. Ah, if only it were that easy :-)

Thanks for your response,
