Hi Fae,

I believe you may be confusing me and Huib here (perhaps because of
the similarity of our volunteer user names?). It was not me who posted
the content of a private email to this list without the sender's
permission. Only after this had already happened I corrected the
tampered quotation of what I had written, because this silent omission
greatly distorted the sense and context of the divulged email.
