It's extremely funny that you of all people should post this Tim, as your
[email protected] address was the first thing I ran a search on when I 
discovered this site. 

Judging by the amount of posting you do here, I was surprised that I only
got 36 listings on your new address (1/3 of which quoted you but not 
directly written by you). Either you post more to alt, soc and talk (which they 
don't have) or you use a third address (the second thing I tried was 
[email protected], even less, though the archive's pretty recent, so that's

Hmm, so you know insiders at Apple and recently held around $65,000 of their 
stock and sold off, saving around $12k in the process after being tipped 
off? Hmmm... (from rec.investment or something along those lines. Want me
to repost your original article? heheheh. <insert evil smile>)

I figured I'd send this to you as a private note, but then I figured

Ps. I will of course run searches on every other address that the who
command on [email protected] supplies me with, so watch what you say 
ladies, gents and otherwise. ;->
Get those 'nyms ready.
