yes, and please all do learn from this:

Just because *you* may not have got your message back in time, don't jump
to wrong conclusions. At least look into the mailing list
archives first.  
If you still see a problem, check with your local IT E-mail
support and then send mail to R-help-owner at ... (or me directly)
rather than the whole list	    ^^^^^^

Please don't "spam" the 2500 R-help readers with such things in
the future.
