According to the CompuServe directory of members:

	Rush H. Limbaugh    #7027,2502

Therefore Rush's Internet address is:  7027.2502 at CompuServe.com....
a period replaces the comma of the user ID.  The gateway is bi-directional,
in that a Compuserve subscriber can send CompuServe mail to an Internet
address.

And why not?  Have you become the network-police/arbitor of "appropriate
material?"   :^)  The Bill of Rights, accepted in 1791, begins with:
"Amendment I: The Congress shall make no law...abridging the freedom of
speech, or of the press;..."

More specifically, Rush Limbaugh is a very popular radio and television
personlity with sometimes conservative and sometimes middle-of-the-road
social and politcal opinions.....and he offends lesbians and feminists
on a daily basis by referring to them as "avenging lesbians and
femin-nazis."  (The only U.S. media market *not* carrying Linbaugh's TV
program is Washington, D.C.)

Additionally, Linbaugh's book, "How Things Should Be," is the #1 Non-
Fiction Best seller: a higher achievement than attained by Ashok or myself,
consevative or otherwise.  :^)
