    Well as one who will almost always answer a test, which is sometimes
only way to see if the list is still alive after a long cold hard winter
with temps going as low 50's in South-Central Florida, which in itself was
enough to stop some of us from collecting for a day or two. Yes, a test can
open a can of worms, (By the way, what kind of worms? Want to split the can
and sell some?) I think and believe that any test message is an opening for
discourse. I also believe in placing humor into as much as I can in
life...You wouldn't believe this, but I just got my second telemarketing
call from the same person in two days, and where as I was writing this reply
with a bunch of humor, I had fun laughing with and at him and the system.
Back to my train of thought ... Yes Larry there is life on the list, just at
the moment your questions came over the list they may have been overlooked
by the members, as we awaited the Auction to start or too busy reading the
messages that informs us who stepped into what river with dirty boots on.
~(:>)) I better get off this line before I offend someone or you with my
(too much) humor. So, how much for some of them worms? ~(:>)) JiM C.
PS: What was your first question? I was too busy with my typing to notice
them. JC

Uh oh...you just opened a huge can of worms.  The reason I sent it was
because I sent two messages to this list with relevant fish and fish
breeding questions.  I had ZERO replies.  I was off of this list for a few
months and I know several knowledgeable people subscribe so I was surprised
not to see any replies.  The test however has received much more attention
and has been much less productive.

I attached a small message to the test in hopes of provoking a little mirth
for those who, like myself don't know why they read those 'stupid' test
messages.  Your response seems at face value offensive.  I hope you jest as

  Better yet, why is there a propensity for people to send stupid test
  messages out?
