While I agree that vicious/emotional posts really are out of line here on
an endurance information listserve, I'd remind anyone criticizing the
operator(s) of the list server that this is FREE. And that there is a
person out there, Stephanie, working hard to provide it to anyone just
for the asking. If you must heap abuse on someone, do it to the people
who offend you - no one else. And I'd entreat you to do it privately.
I subscribe to this for information and ideas; NOT to be put on some
emotional roller coaster!

Sounds like a threat to me. Ever notice that people who never take
responsiblity for their own actions and words are the first to baby-cry
"lawsuit!" and not sign their names?

Probably true - most business people won't miss the chance for a sale!

Maybe someone did try it out - maybe she discovered it buried in her rig
somewhere; maybe whatever - so what? I doubt it was a conspiracy to
cause you harm. While it is undeniable that Teddy shoots off her mouth
without engaging her brain on a regular basis, I've NEVER heard anyone
question her integrity!!!
