It gets worse. In Eastern Armenian pronunciation my
name ends in a "d", and the Russian influence causes
the "h" to indeed become a "g". And when you add that
to the fact that "Papaz" means priest, of course you
get "Grand Priestly"...

A sad goodbye, then, Adam. Typo-L was my first list
too (of any kind), and my participation here has been
a key catalys for me, both in terms of education and
self-promotion. That's probably why I can't entertain
the idea of leaving - loyalty.


I don't think Phil should be expelled based on the
offtopicness of his posts - to me the onus is indeed
on the reader to ignore. But using the listmembership
for private mailings is very much grounds for action.
A formal final warning from the listmom might be best.
