Fw: Lindsay quits

Below is the last note I rcvd privately from Philip Lindsay.

My private response to him said I saw no reason to keep forwarding his notes
to Theos-talk, so I gave him the Theos-talk address so he could do it himself.
I also said I would respond to the note below, privately or publicly, as he
wished. However that note of mine bounced and the Mailer Demon said the Yahoo
account had been closed down. So I guess preaching is PL's milieu, not
discussion with non-residents of the Baileywick.

But he can have the last word -- written below.

Fare Thee Well,
