The problem here lies; while you are endeavoring to make headway to do
things for people... you seem to have a way of causing people great
distress or annoyance in reading your posts/responses/requests.

There a number of people, I am aware of, that "twit filter" based on
your e-mail address, the regex '-i shlomi' in the message headers and/or
message body and some also use regexes of some hot buttons you seem to
have. Many of these people will never see your e-mail(s) and never have
to act on them as they go directly to /dev/null.

That said, I believe you've got a Sisyphean task ahead of you, given
your history with, around, and in many venues. You've got a reputation
the precedes you. And from your evidence already quoted and shown, its

I think my current "quote for the day" happens to be apropos. Its for
March 30th, 2012 from Brainy Quotes.

I wish you well and good luck on your endeavors.
