I've figured out the "number of lines posted" problem. I'm
writing a Perl program. Every time Bill Viergever posts, the
program will copy his post back to the list, and add the line
"Ha-ha! Pretty Funny, Bill!" at the bottom, with some hard returns.
Thus I will always have more lines posted than he will. And, to
handle the "number of unquoted lines" problem, I will use the "/*"
characters at the start of the line, instead of the ">" so that
Joe's parsing program will mistakenly count them as unquoted lines.
