I just wanted to say thank you to Tuna for providing a service I truly
enjoyed. I know how difficult it must have been, especially with all the
negative emails-- but I wanted to let you know that I appreciated it. I may
not have spoke out often, but I really liked the format and I loved being
able to stay in touch with everything. I can't imagine my mailbox without it
