And why do you post your insights to EM, Mike? Random cold advertising?

Don't you just love it when Mike puts one of those ":-)" symbols after 
one of his statements. Everyone else I know who uses those does so to 
make it clear that no offense is intended, but Mike uses them to accent 
an intended insult and to compliment himself on his own "wit." What is 
wrong with this guy?

Huh? So nobody would ever send out an algorithm unless the person(s) to 
whom he sends it had previously mentioned a similar algorithm? Am I 
missing something here?
