I'm starting to feel like a cartoon character. Am I suffering from some wierd form
of molecular desynchronisation?

What exactly are you trying to accomplish? Does Brad subscribe to this list? If not,
you may as well be complaining about how your toaster's broken. This is not the
right place to whinge - you need to do it someplace where Brad will actually see it.
Have you considered emailing him directly?

Or perhaps whatever the problems were have been resolved. Just in case this isn't
so, if I send you a form guide, will you pick a few horses for me? :-)

I really don't want to play any more Dan - I'm too busy even if this is a bit of
sport. You'll never convince me that you're not wasting bandwidth with tirades about
your enemies, so please refrain from trying to. My questions were all rhetorical -
don't feel obliged to answer them.
