Welcome one and all.

I'll add my usual note for the Non-U.S. area in saying that you don't have to be outside North America to participate there. If you have any questions or thoughts on how we do things in other parts of the world, you're more than welcome to discuss them with us and to compare with American practice.

Thanks for heading up the Welcome thread here. I'd like to add my voice to it too.

Welcome to the New Members!

P.S. c'mon, don't be shy!

Please try again, and forward the undeliverable email too so we can figure out why it was bounced. Sending a couple copies would increase the chances of one getting through.
