A few minutes before reading your mail below, I sent an open mail (Subject
"Courtesy") to the list voicing my concerns. I am sorry if I was out of
order - I have included an apology in that mail for treading on your toes -

I gave a lot of thought before posting that mail, but it was generated by
the critical mails I had been receiving from a very few subscribers.
I trust you will support the comments I make in that mail.
