Well, well, you keeper of the "Great Filtered Searchable Unwanted Archive",
What do you really think we are??
I m pretty new to this list, but not to lists in general, and btw. from
all the others
i m subscribed to i never ever heard such BS!
If we all had the time to change the clock of our PCs and Macs just to
be ahead of
others, what do you think we re doin all day long? I think there s a lot
of hard workin
people out there (and on this list) which neither have the time nor the interest
in doin such...
So do i really have to read and answer my mail 4 times a day just to be
part of this list?
I better quit then, cause i JUST DON t HAVE THE TIME FOR THIS, cause i
have to do my job.
Thats why i come to answer maybe one day, maybe 2 behind some posted message
(which i found was NO PROBLEM to all the other lists i m on...)
SO, do you want us to quit for that reason????

Not a very friendly behavior, this.... (:-((((
