Ooh, this is just too funny :)

So, can you disclose your list of biggies? Everybody's interested to
see whether he made it or not, except for Justin who already knows.
Oh, and adding to your advice, it also helps to write clear and close
to correct english, like using  you and you're in stead of u and ur.

This is really like talking to somebody about somebody in abstract,
with the person standing next to you! You wouldn't think that Justin
or any of the other biggies (hey, is there a hint of jealousy? :p)
wasn't reading these mails, would you?

But then there is a serious note to it all. It is close to sin to
write gromacs related questions that are not specific to a person's
work to someone in person. First, none of the people on this list is a
helpdesk or personal teacher, and second, by keeping discussions from
the list, you keep them from being archived, disallowing others to
learn from your questions.

If you want really good advice on how to get people to answer your
mails, better read:
