Hey, thats cool. For those of us that develop for websites that get a 
decent amount of traffic, 1% can be a large number of people.

Thats "you're" for future reference.

Yes, we're nothing more than average developers. Some of us are pretty 
good developers, others are just starting out. Average.
Your obviously superior knowledge of the web development business puts 
us all to shame, and I feel inadequate even replying to this message 
that was sent by such an obviously genius mind.

Obviously you've been on other listservs with people like us before 
joining thelist.

Because you're sending HTML formatted email which, if you bothered to 
read the first email you got after joining thelist, isn't allowed here 
for a number of reasons. If you didn't want to have to wait two days for 
your message to get posted, you should have followed those simple rules. 
Simple rules like that obviously escape genius minds likes yours. I'll 
try to take that into account in the future.

Watch out for speeding buses on your bikeride, and remember to wear 
black!!! :)
