I'm sorry Gene, but did you have something to say here or were you
just ranting on with some useless drivel? I am not Peter Whalley, and
I have never sent any challenge/response messages to this list, so you
can take me out of that category. I have no idea what you mean about
taking my address out of the address line. This e-mail account is not
using TMDA, so I don't know what your major complaint to me is. You
have never gotten a challenge from me.

My messages were simply based on the premise that Peter Whalley is
using some type of C/R system that he does not know how to configure.
I personally am of the same opinion as about everyone else on this
list... if he want's to subscribe to a mailing list then he better be
sure not to pollute the list with his stupid requests.

But what on earth does your message mean, and why are you even writing
to me about it? If you have something to say about anything I wrote,
then by all means say it, but know what you are talking about before
you write paragraphs of senseless garbage.
