You should have. Then we could have made fun of you here.

Comment: Last week I sent an e-mail requesting my password, as I had lost it. You never bothered to respond. If you don't care any more than that if your boards get used, I guess that's your problem. Thanks but no thanks! Don't bother responding to my request, as you obviously don't give a crap!!!!!!!!!!!!

Comment: While I am highly curious and interested in rumer debunking, i.e., just read story on Ollie North and Osama Bahama Mama, and immediately following friend's email was the story bebunking the whole senate inquiry bit, by one of the friend's correspondants, I don't have a picture to send with registration and am not that computer savvy for your requests.
I don't feel comfortable giving my viewpoint as all I really know is what I hear, see and read through the news medias and from friends. How reliable are they?
I just like to read your people's sides of the stories, and make my mind up on what to think or how to react, if this ls possible.

It said click here if I wanted to unscribe and it gave me no option to do
so. This is not what I want and I do not want that hourly mailing.
