Olga, have you bothered to take a look at the blog posts? They're full of nothing but spammers posting video links! Please take care of this by deleting all these stupid members and their spam.

This post may get me banned.

Ning admins, I have finally decided on one of three possibilities:

Thanks for the reply. 

I will try to make it to the talk, Mike. 

If you have not seen the movie "Relativity", you might find it amusing. My favorite scene was when Albert Einstein explained Relativity to Marilyn Monroe.

Curious what prompted "friending" me, Mike.
