Re: 100,000 posts!
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. Andrzej Kozlowski On 21 May 2009, at 13:15, Steven M.
