Firstly, I would like to apologize if I offened anyone by my request for the
stopping of certain topics. I never told anyone what to write about, just
that the amount of mail recieved on those subjects was ridiculous! I do
appreciate the census 2000 and milk and cookies subjects, but many of those
messages could have been conducted privately.
Many people have agreed with me, and from what I hear it has caused several
people to unsuscribe, which is not good. I love this list, it has been a
"life saver" to me. I am only hoping that my request was for the better of
the list. Once again, I'm sorry for any offence that I've caused.
