Members and friends:

I have received so many responses to the message that I posted this morning that I feel that much time can be saved by responding in mass, with the exception of a few of you.

First of all, I want to apologize to all for my strong use of words. I was trying to get a response from the person's I had referred to, and with one it worked, and all is OK between us. I never had intentions of revealing their names to the whole group, or making any trouble for either person. Perhaps I shouldn't have said a few of the things the way I did, and I will chalk this up to new experience, and be more careful and patient in the future.

Due to several of your responses, I now feel that I have over reacted. I was unaware that many of you receive hundreds of emails daily, and I attribute that one fact to the problem that I thought I had. I am only a member of this list, but many of you receive messages from many other sources. From the number of emails I receive each day, I can understand that multiplying that number by even two would make sorting out everyone's messages very time consuming.

As for the other person, I will continue to try to contact him because he just may not have had time to read all of his messages, and mass deleted large numbers of emails as I have been forced to do a few times.

Also, for a few of you who got the whole thing mixed up with another person's problem regarding decals, I want you to know that it wasn't me who had the decal problem.

So, if there are no objections, I would like to drop the whole subject.
