When someone offers something that YOU WANT, please write to them directly at their email address, not through the list. The 700+ members aren't interested in the fact that you want a document from someone on the list. This is a personal request, and as such should be treated that way...privately.
I am a volunteer list admin. I am not on-line 24 hours a day. Sometimes I go grocery shopping. I check my email daily, and I will get back to you; have patience.
Finally, if you do not like the way someone formats their queries or responses, the content of their subject titles, take it up with ME, NOT on the list. Remember we're all living is different parts of the world and what is obvious to you may not be obvious to other list members. Please be patient and polite to fellow list members. If you have any questions, feel free to drop me a note at the above address.
Good luck, Marilyn Strout
