Right. I never mastered the skill of learning to get a piece of paper. I
simply can't be bothered to just for someone elses kicks. I learn
because I want to know and if there happens to be an exam then the exam
just sort of happens but I never learn just to pass that exam.

As such the TLA/FLA thing in signatures also happen to escape my
attention most of the times. In Jules case MailScanner is more of a
credit holder to me.

But that's just me. I just happen to work (or did work) for employers
who think such papers in itself do not tell that much.
