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.
