Thank you for the work you do and have done.

How did I do?

If this is a concern then I would recommend that you or anyone else
apply some form of simple spam-proofing to your email address. I use a
Gmail account and could easily set up a spam-proof or spam variation
by adding a "NOSPAM" tag to the email address and then including
"remove the obvious to reply." Example

Can you pick out the obvious?

Some form of anti-virus software is also a tool you might want to investigate.

Good luck with reaching a point where EVERYONE refrains from posting
your email and also follows through on deleting the content of the
digest in its entirety. People make mistakes and, hey, often people do
things deliberately for whatever reason. Doesn't make it right, but
it's less than realistic to expect this behavior or these events to

No apology necessary here, but I don't expect that you're going to be
especially happy with the results.

Check out for spamming issues. And, yes, set
up a spam-proof or spam-blocking email address.

Most importantly, have a great weekend.
