Re: terminating form input by `C-c C-c'

Sounds even more dangerous: "One day the same keystroke ended up
sending the form! Ah no wonder, I happened to be on a page matching a
regexp." Sounds like a http://www.useit.com/alertbox or RISKS Digest

You look 17 from your X-face above. I'll have you know that I'm older
than the President of the United States, so no amount of timing
adjustment is safe for me...

It turns out it is me hitting C-c four separate times, so it is not a
timing issue at all... it is a "grandpa" issue.

Anyway, I'm happy with all my settings now. Thanks. Bye.
