Like many others I would like to extend my personal thanks for the
great job you have done, particularly over the last decade during
which I have been posting to the MathGroup. In my case there is an
additional reason for gratitude: the rather large number of your
"interventions" that intercepted in time some of my rashest posts.
Thanks to them I can read the list archives with less embarrassment.
With best wishes.
