Ah.  I guess I've been lucky then; the only time I experienced any
unpleasantness on that list, it was extremely brief and happened on-list
(and I got off-list e-mails of support!).  So...<shrugs>...take yer pick,
folks.  Bad things happened to one listmember, good things happened to
another.  Luck of the draw, or something.  But I must say I'm sorry you had
such an experience, Robyn, and it's a shame you felt you had to leave.  I'm
glad you're still *here*, anyway!

Until the sky falls on our heads...
