Saw the message once--didn't need to see it again. I don't know which is worse-
-messages taking forever to traverse the network or receiving the same message
twice. Why don't we make all message traffic slow (Electronic Snail) and then
eliminate the redundancy feature.

Perhaps I should "biff n" to avoid the "Noyed". Maybe we should add a new
item to the TCP/IP jargon list:

        Noyed (n): duplicate message or packet.
        Annoyed (v): the feeling one gets when one receives a noyed.
