My apologies to this newsgroup. I was oblivous to the fact
that this was not a binary group, and made my post without
a second thought. I understand why you are trying to
conserve space, due to a limited amount of it. However,
I am not a spammer -- I am a student -- and I would greatly
appreciate it if you would not make such a quick assumption,
a mistake that should've prevented you from even being
associated *with* a university.

But, in any case, I do apologize for consuming your precious
little space -- 100KB -- for my little question. And, I do want
to say thank you for all your help. I cannot begin to describe
how helpful you've been. It makes me want to just run out and
support all those hard working universities out there!

Keep up the good work!
