Re your message, my subscription at email@example.com might just be one of the
offenders. I've been trying for 12 days to cut off my subscription there,
and I can't access the sumbitch! I'll try again tonight, and I'll try a few
"tricks" as well. If I'm not successful, please feel free to cut the
umbilicle!! ;-) It's not like I'll ever use that service again, it's so out
If I've caused you to lose any more hair than you woulda during a normal
shower, please accept my appologies. I actually have a harder time with this
damned electronic mail-box sh*t than you do--if you didn't have such a super
List site, I'd just cash it in.
Best regards--Lynn Allen
