>>Could I reiterate my request that List members not post irrelevant, non-Iraq >>related posts to this List. Dear All, Personally I like John-Peter's message very much. It did inspire me. If it is not too much a burden to the List members' mailboxes; I am happy to see more reflections like this; they add to the List's readability rather than detract from it. I myself particularly need inspiration like this, as I am a person who is easily frustrated by what I perceive as evil but just can't do much about. ALL the Best, Emir ============================ ----- Original Message ----- 寄件者: "Voices UK" <firstname.lastname@example.org> 收件者: <email@example.com> 傳送日期: 2003年7月20日 AM 04:03 主旨: Re: [casi] Andreas: Zarathustra's Prayer Call Dear List Members, Could I reiterate my request that List members not post irrelevant, non-Iraq related posts to this List. John-Peter: if you want to send a message of this nature to Andreas, please do so by e-mailing Andreas rather than the whole list. I have enough e-mails to delete as it is (as I'm sure do many others on this List).
