        I'd like to thank you for a helluva job well done.  Since I've found 
list, it's become a part of my life, as I'm sure it has for many others. 
Of course, like life, we have joy and pain, anger and laughs.  We
understand - everybody has a right to go postal once in a while, and since
you're our "E-mail postman" you have an extra reason!
        BTW, what's your address?  I'd like to make a humble donation to show my
appreciation.  Thanks again for a job well done.
