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.
