This is the first time I've posted a new thread, preferring to take a back seat as webmaster and let you all get on with it.  However, on this occasion I want to thank you for your surprisingly rapid response to the mass email I sent to all named contributors, on the subject of password protection.  Within hours of sending the message, about three quarters of you had responded - enough to announce already that the majority of you don't want to bother with password protection for the notice board.  In fact, there haven't been any 'ayes' yet.  I would especially like to thank you for the messages of appreciation and support that many of you included in your replies.  What an amiable bunch we are!  I'm not going to be able to thank everyone individually, I'm afraid.

But now the apology.  I always get hot under the collar when friends send mass emails but put the addresses in the 'cc' field instead of the 'bcc' field, thus exposing all recipients' email addresses to all recipients.  I often lecture them on it, but in a (perfectly characteristic) fit of absent-mindedness, that's exactly the crime I myself committed on this occasion.  The problem has been compounded, so I'm told, by some of you hitting 'reply to all' instead of just 'reply' when sending a message back to me.  That has meant that everyone else on the list has also received your message to me!  Firstly, apologies for the confusion and inconvenience caused.  Secondly, if you haven't replied yet but intend to, please don't hit 'reply to all'!
