First, let me wish you all a Happy & Prosperous New Year!
In an effort to save on bandwith in this blessing we call the Internet, I am trying to clean up the mailing list for this group. There is a meetup scheduled for January 23rd and I would very much appreciate it if you would RSVP to the invitation that was sent to you for this event. You don't have to come to the meeting - just RSVP to let me know that you are still interested in being a member of the group.
If I don't hear anything from you, I must assume that you are:
- No longer interested in this group
- Dead (and your heirs are not interested in the group, either)
- Out of the country with no access to email
- In jail in Spain but you have a map to some treasure somewhere and you only need $1,000 to get out and share a fortune with me
- In a similar situation in Nigeria
- A prisoner in a Chinese cookie factory
If you are in these sad circumstances, you have my sympathy, but I must remove you from this group since obviously you cannot participate in group activities. Of course, you are most welcome to rejoin the group if you are really interested. Just sign up and reference the phrase: "You can't keep a good man/woman down!"
