Gwen, thanks for saying those things for Tom, the list and to Daniel.  We do
need some answers here.  I have never been able to understand why people
stay on lists they do not like -- why can't they find another list and or
start one of their own?  I do not believe this is the first time that Mr.
Myers has pulled this kind of nonsense.  I guess he is insecure enough that
the only thing he can do is attack other people.
