Hmm, I don't remember any such question but that doesn't have to imply
that there wasn't. Hence, if you've asked and haven't received any
help, I will apologize for calling your behaviour unfair.
However, I still cannot find a request for help with setting up a
registration site/form on this list, neither including nor excluding
specs, searching from November 2001 until now.

None of your mails contain a request for help, so I'm wondering where
you sent your request for help.

I'd be glad to provide a working alternative, but not earlier than in
three weeks if that's sufficient. I would have been able to provide
one four weeks ago as well, if you had asked.

Before dropping, please send clarification to the observation from
above, so I know if I shall apologize or not.
