Although I never made clarification, when I said cockroach I had in
mind someone (male) who keeps himself busy with insignificant issues,
and bring them to me from time to time, not just on this list but on
other places as well. The real cockroach act is currently dealt with
by ignoring the bug. I used that word in reply to Judy, but the way I
wrote was in the context of the "burden" of this list, and the word
did not refer to Judy.

But she took it that way and I didn't spend one email to deny it; the
time was already in the ULF era.

I'm sure you can reasonably guess how I feel about the rest, but I
just thought to post one correction now. My only post to this list
using "cockroach" is quoted below.
