Dear Sirs,


The thing you're doing is just to add some dial-up users to your lists
and of course SPAMMING ME.  Please keep in mind that I have 10,000 IP
addresses in administration.  I hope that you'll be so kind and you'll
stop this, otherwise until tomorrow my mailbox will be full and believe
me that my happiness will end there.  I think that your attitude will
have to be discussed somewhere.

Kind regards,
Corneliu Tanasa
