Here're a couple BIG HINTS about what to do about it! Take your head out of
the sand now my dear, way-too-kindhearted Eric!

HINT 1: Someone else wrote:

[We too! --ST]

HINT 2: And yet someone else wrote:

[If only!]

HINT 3: And yet someone else wrote:

[which echoes a previous request I've made to you personally, to add to your
rules, "Just Be Nice!".]

This list of hints/echoes goes on, Eric. There is one person and one person
only who has brought thread after thread, and thus the list, to this low
point. Seems to me like it's time to fish or cut bait. Not an easy position
for you and you have my genuine sympathy.
