Re: [ARSCLIST] at this rate, won't be much to archive soon enough

Sorry I am a foreigner,not from the U.S.A. so I never realised large
print to assist those with eyesight problems was regarded as screaming
in the U.S.A..
But by insulting people and not focussing on the music side,you will
only antagonise people, the chappie who was highly insulting to me
whose name I will not mention.I don't need any E mail  guff  from you
about being an idiot.I am not.I  have a University Degree.So grow up
you child.

The e-mail world definitely needs to get a life. There are far more
things to get bent out of shape over than someone typing in caps. Global
warming, poisoned cat food, Anna Nicole Smith, oil prices, useless wars,
Blunt, Dancing With The Stars..these are worthy targets.
