I see, so because I don't have a degree in accountancy I'm not welcome? 
One person tells me they'd love to have me on thefinance if I'm 
interested, another rejects my subscription when I apply. Who am I 
supposed to listen to?

As an aside topic, how come emails from theforum are taking several 
hours to reach me? It's taking on average over two hours from a post 
being sent to me receiving it. I doubt it's a problem on my end because 
all the others lists I am subscribed to deliver mail almost instantaneously.
