Well, it's less editing the document, and more 'going back and seeing
what you HAD said before.'

I got a .doc file in an email once, with some offer about affiliating or
advertising or something website-related.

Anyway, I didn't want to bother DL'ing it and firing up StarOffice, so
I just saved the file to my shell account at my ISP and ran 'strings' on it.

At the bottom, near my name & address, I saw that of a number of other
'(potential) clients' they had e-mailed.

Smoooooooth...  (Honestly, I'm sure whoever did it had no idea Word was
doing that.  But then, that's what you get for not RTFM I guess? ;) )
