A little heavy handed is it not? We can only criticize what we
contribute to. I have posted only one question to this list and
I have in my in box about 40 replies. That is not an indictment

I'll keep my name in the subscribing pool. I hope you keep
your name as well. I am sure we could all learn something
from your contributions.
