Hi, folks, it's yer friendly moderator here.  I do not know Jay outside of
these messages that we all see.  I made the decision a long time ago that Jay's
messages have value, though it's often hidden in walls of text.  He's not going
to change, and as long as he doesn't stray too far off the TFT topic (and he
usually doesn't), he's as welcome to post here as anyone.

That's certainly your prerogative.  I'll admit I don't always read the walls
of text, but deleting emails is easy and causes me no grief.  For the folks
that find even that anger-inducing, all mail programs make it pretty easy these
days to set up filters that will keep you from seeing any of it.  I'd recommend
using his email address in either the From or the body of the message.
