BEGIN FORWARDING OF BACKGROUND MESSAGES
This is the first message to the firstname.lastname@example.org list. :-)
Now lets get on to using the list...
I am going to just start searching through my e-mail archives and just find
all the e-mail about this topic and forward them to the list. That way a
kind of history will be created in the list archives. This seems like the
most reasonable way to get all this information onto the website.
I am going to take the liberty of forwarding (and therefore publicly
posting) a few e-mails that were to private individuals in off-list
conversation. This will end up sending some of their text that I quoted to
the list. I apologize in advance for this.
