Harvey, Max and Shaun -

Point taken, and I certainly didn't mean to belittle Shaun's contributions
to EXI. I apologize if my message was taken that way.

Actually, this probably is a matter of opinion. I personally
appreciate these urgent markings. I sometimes don't have time to
keep up with the list every day. When Shaun marks something urgent,
it is ExI business that has a close deadline. If I don't respond to
these messages pretty quickly, I would lose my chance to do so when I
get around to reading the list a few days later. Although these may
have seemed to be false alarms to you, since you probably didn't need
to respond to those messages, I think it is a valuable service for
those who do need to respond to those messages.
