The first time it is while not exactly "scary"
a little discomforting because I didn't even
understand it was an e-mail being composed (and
I was even an Rmail or Gnus user at the time,
but it didn't look like an ordinary message
buffer somehow), I wasn't sure to whom it was
supposed to be sent, and the insertion of data
to describe my current state felt like I was
throwing in my clothes and bike in the bargain.

Maybe one could insert a line like this: "This
is an ordinary e-mail which contains harmless
data. If you are unsure if whether to send this
or not, you are encouraged to do so."
