Yahoooo! Yet another one using the name rp-ml without approval...

What's the matter with you people, where's your imagination? Just trying
to ride with other peoples hard work? Is that the best you can offer?
I'm sure your company enjoys this kind of reputation.

What makes you think that I've been keeping this list alive for several
years now - and for the past two years investing my own money in to it to
keep it alive. Just to give it away to any Jack or Jill willing to
take it? Keep on dreaming- it's never that easy.

> I am saddened to see all of the people removing themselves from the list.
That happens every day. Each day about 10 people leave the list, but more
join it - Every Single Day. That's called Life.

> This list has a tremendous value.
Yep, more than you're ever able to pay. Neither The List nor the Name is
for sale.

Stealing it you mean? Shame on you.

Yeah, sure - for how long? Remember my friend, I've done that - It's more
work than you can imagine - If you want to provide a good service - that

So good luck with your moderation - I expect your list serves
subscribers 24/7 with no delays longer than a few hours... even when the
daily email amount rises above 20... The list IS international, and emails
do come 24 hours a day - so show what you got tiger.

During the night time and weeekends and your holidays?

Hey that's a neat name, I might set up a mailing list "protocallonline" -
I'm just not sure what I use it for... Well, I'll find something "nice"...

Sorry folks - this is one of the not so good days.

Bye for now... I got some real work to do today.
