Uh, Val, thsi was what we call spamming. Now that you're
a list you're going to see periodic annoucnements like that
from time to time. Remember what iw as telling you about
my disgust with the porno stuff that shows up in my AOL
mailbox? Well, that Deaf Entertainment thing is the same type
of indiscriminate broadcast. It a bane of being on the net.
You're in the big leagues now, unfortunately.
