Sir, I am not mentioning you.
I recieved a mail with ILUG-C in topic and after reading through, I just
pressed the Reply Button and replied. I was not aware of the fact that
members in the list may reply to the persons in individual also. Thanks to
Shri. T. Shrinivasan, who in a  private chat, made me understand that the
other mail was a private mail and not the one from the list.

I donot want to create unrest by mentioning the writer of the mail but, I
just post the mail content below for a further understanding.

I felt very much insulted on seeing the mail below. I accept the critisicm
of not abiding to the rules. But, I cant accept someone degrading my

Thank you,

Write your feedback to the person who sent the survey, not to the list!

You are not obliged to complete the survey.

If you have any specific feedback, write to the author who sent the
survey, and not to the list!
