Why does it bother me so much that someone referenced my resume web page in a listserve mailing as an example of the use of "Int'n'l" as an abbreviation for International? Is it because it's stuck in the list archives there forever now? Is it because a few days after the letter my site went over bandwidth allotment for the month? There are only 59 people on the list...

Either way, when I requested that they remove it, I was told essentially, "Sorry, I don't have to ask to reference this stuff, I'm not infringing on copyright. I talked to my friends and they agree with me. There's no reason for you to be upset about it. I can't edit the archives, and I'm not going to ask the archive maintainer to do it."

It's a mailing list for the study of BRAILE for Christ's sake. It shouldn't bother me. I feel BAD that it bothers me. But it does. And the fact that they really don't care chaps my ass.
