I have re-read your mail and I beg you for pardon. I was wrong.

I'm very sorry but I'm not perfect. My earlier reply did not cc:
you. Could you please wait for it to happen a second time in the
same thread before complaining? You seem a bit touchy about it.

I found the following when I was googling for X-No-CC:

I couldn't but smile. "Oh no, please have mercy, don't feed me to

Live in peace, Tomas
