I am a bit puzzled by it so invite any insights you all may have....

Sergio Servado askeded that he be removed from the CR list a week ago. At that time I complied and removed his e-mail address as shown on the mail I was sent. Turns out that he had two memberships active, which I guess he didn't realize either. So I removed the second version this morning after reading this.

Please, delete my address from the mailing list (second request).

Despite I sent, quite a while ago in fact, the required message to unsubscribe, I have been receiving correspondence all this time.

Meanwhile, I have got also private @-mail messages of people who felt sorry that I would leave and expressed appreciation of my past contributions. Their kind words were very well received,.as much as I have enjoyed reading some of the things that had been circulated through the List.

This is why I feel bound to explain the reasons behind my decision.

After its Charter, this List is, in reality, primarily a marketplace, which annoys me already quite a bit. I have also entertained (very small scale) business correspondence with some members and, with two most notable exceptions, I invariably got disheartened by it, and a couple of times very disappointed and upset . It might be possible to trace my uneasiness back to a sort of different attitude about money, to differring rules for trading and, more generally, to a cultural barrier. No matter what, I think I really would like not to be involved any longer in such transactions. Nor to be forced to read, and dump, so many messages the sole scope of which is to present merchandise and embellish it beyond my comprehension.
