I usually am pretty quiet preferring not to add to the "noise" level. BUT, Jay
has been doing a fabulous job maintaining the list and providing some order.
While some may or may not like it, there HAS to be someone in charge ... and
that is Jay. He has always been open to suggestions and mildly tolerant of a
*bit* of list "noise", and I see nothing that indicates a change. Personally, I
think this list is very lucky to have someone with his knowledge, resources, and
dedication running this list ... it appears to be a mostly thankless job.

Jay, thanks MUCH for all the work you put into this list!
