- I can't stand it any longer either. This is a letterpress list. Take it over to Facebook or Letpress (they like this kind of stuff). Further contributions to this thread will put the contributor on moderated status. I have way too much to do all day long and then have to deal with member complaints about this thread is just a bit too much.

- I apologize, Gerald.
Since I have Letpress and PPLetterspress come into the same e-mail
folder, I assumed this was a Letpress thread, and we both know that some
of their threads dive into deep waters (to mix metaphors). I'll be more
careful in the future.
