I've decided not to list anyone's email address anymore, because I don't want them getting spam. I've also begun listing the contibutors next to the items they've contibuted. Prior to item 62, I did not do this. People who contributed signs #62 or above are listed in the general list as I no longer have a record of who contributed each item. Unfortunately, some good contributions that I intended to include were lost in a hard drive crash. If you submitted one that did not get included, please send it again.
Sorry. The add form has been removed due to continuous spamming.
