Please, calm down. I agree with liw when he says that getting
uol.com.br customers
to react could have been achieved by other ways. The listmasters could
ask the brazilian developers for example. I'm one and i'm already in
contact with UOL and no, i've nothing to do with UOL customers.

the uol.com.br ban.
