Gee whiz, someone starting their message with "Hello fellow TechWhirlers" (or
variations) is just a salutation, or rather a casual salutation. I agree that
list is for professional issues, but that doesn't mean we can't be casually
our greetings and salutations.
Happy Tuesday, everyone!
Just my opinion, balancing on the edge of being off-topic!
