Note that all mail containing executables and archives are automatically filtered and will not reach my mbox. I use  VERY strict spam filters. If you expect a response from me but you’re not getting it, your initial mail probably didn’t pass my filters. If you bug me more than once with unsolicited mail, you will be permanently blacklisted.
