      It seems that a troll is having some fun with everyone at Infoguys.
      After receiving four "Happy New Year" messages from the troll, I
      decided to take a look at the e-mail header. Here is the pertinent
      part below:

      Please notice this line:

      X-eGroups-Application: calendar

      Then I looked at the Infoguys "Calendar." Sure enough, it is set up
      so that anyone (not just the moderator) can send out Calendar
      announcements to the entire group. So, let's look here to see what
      our friendly little troll has done:


      Let's look and see what's here:

      Event Name: Happy New Year!
      Date: Saturday, January 1, 2005
      Time: All Day
      Repeat: every fourth day.
      Reminders: 2 hours before the event and 1 hour before the event.
      Description: Happy New Year, and check out tRoLLhAck's cool blog ...
      love that guy!


      Well, it seems the troll has decided to send us TWO reminders EVERY
      FOURTH DAY of this New Year message. Therefore, I implore Leif to
      consider taking over the calendar and removing this reminder unless
      we all would like to get another two copies of it four days from now!

      Best regards,
