Not everyone is as great as you Edwin, sorry there are lesser people
around in the world.

I would prefer it if you stop behaving like this (You did that recently
in another group, in private and now on public lists). It does not suit
you being this kind of person, perhaps you can have a walk on the

Edwin, please ask him to take place at the helm. Thanks.
