I think this is a pun on "everybody hates tofu"...  But I *like* tofu (the
food kind, not the quoting kind). :-D

Well, I haven't used the above nearly enough to justify an acronym...  And
if we did have one, why not something like TIANTOFUL ("this is a no-TOFU
list")? ;-)  Or even IASBYMS ("I am sorry, but your mailer sucks"), to
include both this and PCYMTNQREAIYR?
In any case, I don't mind adding an acronym entry with links to the above
(and <>, for that matter), if people agree on what
it should say.
