Congratulations with your award! Very kind of you to show it with
holding it against the screen, but I have to admit I couldn't quite
clearly see it because the screen was also full of your writing.
Maybe it's a good idea to show it to us in the background of your
next story (for example in Scrooge's office) as a little background
detail? Or wouldn't Gladstone/ Egmont allow that?
> You're way too polite to people who call this an "idiot mailing list".
Well, maybe. It's just that I can understand the problem with getting
desperate after sending several unsubscription-messages and still
getting the mail or digests every day.
But on the other side, and that's more important: If you want to
unsubscribe to this club, it means that you once got *subscribed*.
And subscribing to this club means that Per sends you message to
*read* (and *not* the rhyming word *delete*!). In that message is
explained (maybe repeately) how to unsubscribe, it just makes me
wonder how people can get that *idiot* not doing that! (Impolite
I have a kind of standard message here that I send to people who send
their unsubscription-message to the club. It's just for the reason
that I hate it that when I think there's something posted, the message
just says "please, unsubscribe me".
But maybe Per can be more clear about this problem in his message?
I don't know, I can't remember now how that message looked like
(although *I've kept it* in my mailbox-archive!).

Maybe *everyone in the world* must be obliged to read the contents
of this club and the Disney comics? We could at least do that in
America, we just have to search that long-lost *golden helmet*! ;-)
> After all, we are NOT idiots, are we?
No, at least I'm not an idiot, I'm an *automobile*! <ROAR!> ;-)

Well, let's say your collegue is now obliged to read the entire work
of "our" Don Rosa! (Hmmm, not quite a punishment!) ;-)
