Simple Request

I wish people that write would "Publish their E-Mail Address" with their message. Maybe the question "Publish my E-Mail Address Online" makes people think it will be available to solicitors? I don't know, but I don't think that it is provided to solicitors? There are often times I'd like to e-mail them personally to thank them or ask them a few questions, without going "on-line" at

If I were able to read their response as a result of my e-mail message to them, I may reply via sitnews, but I may not after hearing them expand on their reasoning. There are times I'd like to pose a question to those that have posted without boring others due to the fact that I don't have the entire background of the specific story. I realize you cannot require people to do so, but it would be nice if they would. If I am wrong in requesting this that is okay, just a request.

I posted a message one time, with my e-mail address, and received quite a few personal e-mails back. Got me in touch with a lot of old friends and I was able to read, according to their thoughts, where I was wrong or right in my point of view. There are a lot of people out there that are reluctant to post on for fear of backlash on, but it doesn't mean they don't have something to say. Many of them don't enjoy laying themselves out on the line and that's great too, I'm sure we'd all love to hear what they have to say whether it be via sitnews or in an e-mail. So if you are willing, please click the appropriate box that says [YES] up near the top. You never know who may reply via!

Thank you for your time.
