Pam was on this list a long time ago. The treatment she received back then
was beyond rude. I was appalled by it and considered it unprofessional, more
so than scanning poorly. If this is like a job, then we need to act like
we're professionals and treat each other with courtesy.  It is possible to
disagree with someone without degrading them. Where I work, I would be
suspended for talking to my coworkers the way Pam was treated on this list.
I don't blame her for leaving and wouldn't give out my address after that
either. If you need to reach her about a specific book, please write to Pavi
and ask if she will make contact. 
Some of us have been helping Pam learn to scan better, and her work has
improved markedly. I don't think she'll ever risk being on this list again
though. Her services are valuable to me, if not to anyone else here. She
buys and scans books, and the majority of what she has done during the last
two years is quite readable.
