In the past when Richard has been looking for some specific information which would not be of general interest, I've made the mistake of e- mailing him directly. Its a total waste of time, as it never gets through, kind of like shouting at the TV or an old relative who's hearing has got to the point where the only way to have an intelligent conversation is to just sit and listen, unless you want to yell at the top of your lungs and let the whole room hear. Now don't misinterpret this, I find Richard to be one of the most useful source's of photographic and other technicaly arcane knowledge I've encountered on the web, however I do find this sort of spam blocker intensely irritating whenever I encounter it. Particularly when the person using it is engaged in doing the e-mail equivalent of yelling at themselves to see if they can still hear! I would appreciate it if this comment was taken as a comment on the way in which electronic media are modifying the modalities of interpersonal communication. It is not meant personally in any way.
