Email Disclaimers

I have never really understood why some may people add that boilerplate disclaimer text to the bottom of their emails.  I've never believed that they have any sort of legal value (to be fair my knowledge of legal matters is 90% speculative).  So I did a very short search of the web this morning to see what I could find.  This article from the Wall Street Journal is a nice summary and shares some of the problems I have with disclaimers. And another one from the Chicago Trib.
A teacher at the last high school I worked at had a satirical disclaimer at the bottom of his emails and it always made me smile.  Although this one takes the cake for satirical.
