I remember very well the days when this list would send out more spam,
subscribe and unsubscribe messages, and complaints about them than on topic

I would like to congratulate you on the positive changes that you have made
to the list.  I appreciate your efforts very much and feel that you deserve
a pat on the back.

Thank you...
