Subject Re: So, How in the heck have you been?
Date Wed, 20 Sep 2000 01:18:28 GMT
Let me make this very clear.
The plan itself may or may not be legal.
Your method of advertising it IS.
OUR previous conversation:
    Do not send me any further correspondence of any kind, and take me
off any and all lists.

YOUR response:
See below.

Should you persist in your correspondance I will be forced to pursue
legal recourse to recover my lost time, which as a computer consultant
I bill at $120 per hour.  That is correct, any further use of my time
through your correspondance will be billed at $120 per hour or
fraction thereof.
