Re: Identity Theft

Thank you for your original post, and don't worry about the trolls.

Here's a little saying I learned back at university:

   The things that matter at all,
   matter to those who matter, 'tis all;
   the matter of those not seeing what matters don't matter,
   their matters don't matter!
   Stay true to yourself in the matters that matter,
   for all matters pursued ought matter.

Your contribution was appreciated, and know that you -never- need to
justify such contributions around here ... right on topic, and always

Have a great one :)
