Hi all.
I appreciate the responses thus far.
As I am becoming aware, this list has those who are capable of tact and 
professionalism, and those who have some growing up to do. Gregory's 
response is part of the former category, and I greatly appreciate the advice 
of those who had some to give. For those who would spoute uselessness in an 
untactful way, we know who you are, including the fact that you often write 
to this list with issues that do not directly pertain to the Speakup 
package, wasting everyone's time who have to sort through the junk. But by 
putting your name out there with a response that concerns only your poor 
distaste for the annoyingness of my suggestion without consideration as to 
why I suggested it, you've earned yourself a reputation.. However, your 
response was nonetheless considered, Tyler.
