Dear Ellis and other list members,

just to explain my posting, which seem to have 
irritated you. I was not sure if these postings 
were spam or legitimate postings by some student, 
who were not aware of the lists content and the 
appropriate forms of communication on a list. 
Because the English was not always correct, I was 
assuming this, as I thought that plain commercial 
spam would not contain such mistakes. I did not 
want to stigmatise anyone. But I have to ask what 
you Ellis mean by "particularly a German"? Is 
there any problem with me being German? Or was 
this a general remark on me not being a native 
English speaker.

I hope I watched out for typos in this posting and for punctution as well.
best wishes
