I appreciate the posts that I recieve from Midrange but there are select
users ( as an example / MacWheel ) that when he posts a message, the message
will post at 2 minute intervals sometimes resulting in as many as 90 post of
the same message.   
Anyone have an idea of how to prevent this from happening ??

> And the person who was mailed the notice and ignored it....

Many dot.com places that go bankrupt do so suddenly as a big surprise to 
people who believed in this new economy theory ... I was reading in some 
e-press about ISPs that went down suddenly without any warning to their 
customers & stayed down, permanently, with totally lost access to the 
customer data ... this could lead to a wave of bankrupsies by customers 
unable to function without access to adequate ISP-backups of their data.

I wonder how much of this economy slow down is the dot com ponzi scheme 
reaching into old economy enterprises that fell for it & messing them up.

Many people ignore notices that were mailed for good reason.
The first time it happened to a co-worker was notice of date of change in 
state tax rates & the accounting co-worker waited until the date of the 
change to tell me ON THAT DAY about this.  
He wanted me to wave my magic programming hand & implement the new tax rate 
retroactive to everything we had done from start of day, but the software
did 
not use external tax rate files, and shipments created transactions in real 
time.

I told him, pointing out the window at a truck pulling out of our loading 
dock.  
"Do you see that truck?"  
"Yes."
"It is full of merchandise we have shipped at yesterday's tax rates ... you 
need to dash out there & flag it down so we can correct the invoices that
are 
inside the packages, then you need to shut our whole operation down for a
few 
days, because that is how long it is going to take me to redo the software, 
and thoroughly test it."

Well, this became a modification request to implement PDQ like anything
else, 
but I wanted to drill down the point that the time he spent sitting on the 
notice was time we ended up paying taxes without being reimbursed for them.
