Wow, it's really funny to read your mail.
That stuff is so clueless and ridiculous... You must be the
master troll.

I do actually remember why I put you into my mailfilters back in 2008.
I did one mistake, however. I later reinstalled the machine and did
not put the filters back.

To say once again what I already said in 2008:
We are not your personal support army for your questionable business.

Greetings Michael.
