Hi Jake and Cindy, 

Yes, I did forward the message along to Patricia, I will have to look up her
new address again since the old Comcast address is no longer valid.

Cindy,

Re: Patricia Kepler - You have one of SEVERAL books she validates and 
Gustavo kicks back for copyright verification. The person who submits these 
books apparently doesn't understand how to determine a copyright and neither

does Patricia, as she validates them without correcting the submitter's 
mistake. So, I doubt you'll ever be able to get her involved in fixing that 
error unless she joins the list or someone communicates with her directly 
and tells her she is doing it incorrectly.

Jake
