Re: [IP] ANTE UP!!!



At this time I'm not able to contribute to IP because of personal/financial
problems.  I don't consider myself a "moocher" as when I am finacialy able I
will be sending Michael a contribution.  I've enjoyed being a part of this
list and am grateful for the support of MOST of the people on this list. But
I think if a person is not finacialy able to contribute they should NOT be
called a moocher and made to feel like they are taking advantage.  Remember
you don't know a persons financial/personal situation.

Just venting
