[ga] Re: [IFWP] Re: I have no idea what this is - Forwarded mail....

Joe and all,

  I don't know whom this "Bill Jeffries" person is, but he is using a
free E-Mail account from USA.COM yet he provides no SIG file
giving any indication as to whom he may be or what affiliation(s)
he may have.  I also find no listing for him anywhere with that E-Mail
address.  GIven he is using "INEGroup" as his user ID, I find this
a bit strange, he is not on our membership list BTW.
