Gentlemen, after several complains and talking with Mindspring, It seems
to be that we have succeeded in making them to take an action against
Timothy Rue's abusive and irrational behavior.
My apologies if this message is once again off topic, but I feel that I
have to let you know.
Enclosed is the reply to my latest complain from Mindspring.
