Well, I've been trying to get elected as techwrhirl's grumpiest curmudgeon,
but I'll settle for having the most famous .sig. I think someone wrote
a short story with "Did the Corinthians ever write back" as the title,
it appeared in the San Jose Mercury News (?) as the unanswerable question
of the day, and I can't begin to tell you how many personal messages I
get insisting that they did and how many more insisting that they didn't.

Well, there was a two-way communication. This is rather obvious from
the language: "In regards to your questions ....." or very similar appears
very early on. But, we don't have a copy of any actual letters. I've
always hoped (and still do) that some archeologist will dig up a tablet
with the following:

Dear Paul,
Quit your yacking and get off our butts.
The Corinthians.

Sure would change the story, now wouldn't it?
