Yes, I apologize for our overzealous robot. I think it is a stupid waste
of time and effort, but I don't set policy. While I'm at it, I'll also
apologize for the bazillion line footer that our mail system automatically
adds on. You would think a lawyer would have something better to do than
invent that kind of inane drivel. Seems like a waste of 6 years of college.


P.S. Don't even THINK about sending me any b10nd jokes :-)
