    Speaking of spelling... If a person does not seem to be disturbed or worried they are not fazed. So your reply did not faze him. It is not that it didn't "phase" him.

    I agree, there are bad people out there, but there are good people as well.

    just to point out, gmail (if not others) requires the email address be more than i think 6 characters, so can't just use one's call sign.

    also, 'free' email accounts are easy to get a hold of so that one can spoof whomever, as opposed to ISP-provided ones.
