AMEN Mark! I waited several days to reply to him, after the blasting I
got. And, I do not remember him being an active participant in this
mailing list before. I recognize and deeply appreciate many of the
people who are and have been so helpful, for such a long time, in this
mailing list. He's not one of them.

That's also true. It might even be me or another newbie who has the
answer to his problem.
However, it is so obvious that he knows *EVERYTHING* I'm not sure why
he has begun to participate in this mailing list.  Simply to tell
others how to post or not post. Has he helped anyone here?

If one of the Developers wants us out, we will leave, but, I do not
believe the Developers agree with what vandaman writes.
