Luser:   Doesn't get the "Red Hat IPO letter"

Elite:   Gets the Red Hat IPO letter.

Elitist: Gets the Red Hat IPO letter but doesn't know it because
         his aggressive spam filters trash it.  Finds out he
         was on the list from the "Reminder" letter that, for some
         reason, was not captured by the spam filters.
