I didn't know it was required expected to announce these things, as they disappear when moderated, and the traces just seem to stir things up! confused

on a related and somewhat interesting note, I only received one e-mail from Anu in reply, which surprised me a bit - I expected it to be a robotic response on a one for one basis.

true about announcing, though I clicked them all to see!

I think it's Anu himself that does the replies, the ones I gotten have always been quite personable!
