I haven't seen so much action here since the Plattdeutsch wars! Who started this whole thing? Who's the culprit behind this clever ploy for a roll call? A roll call should be called a ROLL CALL, not a LIST PLEA! Of course I can't recall the last time we had a RC on H-L, if ever! So could it be you Juergen behind this slight of hand (or are you just grinning) or perhaps big daddy Rumps as he tools across the US in his ever mobile trailer? (ANTE UP YOUR PRESENT LOCATION FRED, AND CLEAR YOUR NAME!).�
Or did it simply "emerge" and take on a life of its own from the Thaden's addy book (there were rather nebulous references to Plaxo cards and vCards, as if it wasn't confusing enough!). Soon our friend Reiner from Hamm joined the fray and quickly obliged the Thaden "initiative". Next thing you know Maurice Woolsoncroft declares that Yes! He wishes to remain on the list! Wolfgang from Barsinghausen adds a bit more fuel to the fire (lots and lots of family names to boot) with his clear "confirmation", and then Maurice reaffirms he STILL wants to stay in the listing! Soon Erika and Harold and J.S. (and everyone who was ever anyone here) is throwing out their pleas to remain subscribed to H-L while the oldest hens of the list remain A) bewildered B) slightly suspicious C) amused D) looking for a way to introduce Plattdeutsch into all this E) all of the above. (Note: Jb remains in the latter category, should it matter)
Now, where are the German-speaking pleas? Hopefully it isn't just the Anglo speaking subscribers getting booted off the list surreptitiously! Deutschlanders sprich! Don't be left behind!�
ATTN: FIRE! FIRE IN THE HOUSE! (oh wait a minute, that's a different prank).�
What's the old saying? Mal den Teufel nicht an die Wand! I think so maybe.�
PS. Ok my turn :: I BEG YOU, DON'T CAST ME OFF! Dear list admin: Please, I beseech you. Don't be ein Teufel here! I want to remain.
MY NAMES : SCHMIDT, M�LLER, WEBER, SCHULTZ and MEYER (and you wonder why I drink a lot).
HELP! HELP ME (especially with those first two!)
