And this was absolutely NOT important in my life so don't say EVERYBODY
LOOK!

I will make it very clear for you.  This is not a question type mailing
list.  Do you have ANY question about "how to" do ANYTHING HTML related?
Then do NOT ask it here.  Go to one of the newsgroups related to HTML, or
buy a book or something or one of the other resources listed right here:

NO!  IT WOULD NOT!  This is not that forum.  I get about 100 emails a day,
and I am not a member of this list to answer your technical support
questions.  This list is for expert discussion of HTML issues relating to
the W3C.

What is wrong with you?  Making a suggestion like that?  What do you expect
people to do... undelete all the trash mail generated from people sending
crap to our mail boxes?  You are NOT the only one, so don't feel so
self-important.

This apology seems rather sarcastic to me after reading the tone of the
rest of the letter so that is how I will take it.  That being the case, I
hope that other people read this and think twice before using this
discussion forum as a place to ask questions.  If you want to learn here,
then just do it by reading what is being written.
