Amen, Brother!
I'm about to QRT from the list, it's beginning to BORE me to death with all  
of the skimmer stuff. yeah, I can delete it, I do, but, that's getting old 
also,  due to the sheer volume of messages.

This rediculous subject is never going to end.  It is  just going to go on

The use of Skimmer is definitely assisted, but  those who don't think it is 
will argue till their last breeath that it  isn't.

When I see the word Skimmer in the subject of a message or in a  message it 
self, I usually just delete it, and move on.  Putting it  to rest is never 
going to happen.  Plus, think of all the fools who  are foolish enough to pay 
$75 for  it.
