Hi!

I just thought you might like to know that I have added you to my email 
kill list. I won't receive another message from you so don't bother 
replying.

To play "Your Game"...The volume of useless and inane messages you send 
combined with your idiotic attitude is too much to handle.

Goodbye

Wayne

This *is* chilled out.

Are you sure?  Since using that phrase, I have received a reply from
someone in charge of such things.  Before I used that phrase, my queries
were ignored.  The evidence appears to be that using such a phrase means
that you get noticed.

I must say I dislike this state of affairs, but if `They' won't listen
unless you hurl insults, then I'll play `Their' game and hurl insults.

Eh?  But surely `when the stats were run' means `This is the time at which
these stats were generated from the data we have received'?

What's stupid about the phrase is that it's clearly terribly ambiguous...

>_Please_ chill _out_!

As I say, I *am* chilled out...  I've been very irritated at having my
queries to rc5help at slacker.com ignored.  I'm well aware that this kind of
posting won't endear me to anyone - but it might make life a little easier
for everyone else if the cock-ups are fixed.

Rowland.
