I see where you are getting confused. The actual problem
is that the EricJohnson module has a bug which causes it
to "blow up" when it attempts to parse the output of the
MichelleSteiner module - apparently because it continues
to read past the sigdashes. This causes the EricJohnson
module to output corrupt data. Many of the other modules
in comp.sys.mac.system (including the IanGregory module)
are poorly implemented and fail to suppress their output
when presented with corrupt input, resulting in a broadcast
Changing the .sig of the MichelleSteiner module would be
an ugly hack and would not solve the underlying problem.
For example, another module might start using the same
.sig and then where would we be?
