Linda Merle, THIS is why I like you.  Your Scotch-Irish appeals to my Scotch-Irish.  If we ever have a fight it'll be a hell-raiser but becoming friends again will be fun too.
I want to have a cousin tested for yDNA.  He is the only close male relative I know named McElhannon who I know well. 
What is that address I should send a request to?  Now I can spell but I can also make a lot of typos and I don't often use Spelchek either.

Yo! Care -- You're not the admin of this list, love. The first rule is....

Only the admin admins. I haven't checked Rootsweb's latest rendition of
the The Sacred Rules lately, but the last 200 times I did over the course of 15
years or so stuck here admining this list, but all those other times one of the
tops rules for members was not to post administrative comments to the list and
to let the admin do the admining.

If you do it again I'll make you deputy admin and book a long vacation to a
location with NO Internet access. I can't think of a nastier way to get

I'm posting it to the list to avoid 50% of our members assuming that
I've already left on that vacation and am reneging my responsibilities. The
other 49% will unsub due to the nasty emails and fighting that they won't
tolerate. One percent will send me a 'right on!' email..... Sigh.
Another one percent will send a "Out of prison on early release?"

I've already lost the popularity contest, about 15 years ago -- and now so
has Care and the person whose name I don't recall whom I privately emailed
earlier (see, I DO do my job, so there!!) --- join me in the penalty box.

Anyway, please people, flame each other privately (this includes me). No one
else cares, seriously. If we all do this the list'll sink into lethergy
again immediately. If you don't, you'll feed the flames and it'll

A little patience is all we need....breathe,'s over. And
seriously, we don't even recall anyone's name any more who was involved.
You are all forigven (waves hands). If you see any more annoying emails, hit
the delete key. Your blood pressure will immediately begin to drop. This is not
worth busting your annuryism over. Or however you spell it. I'm obviously
American. So I can't spell. And I am too lazy to use spell checks. My
brother in law has the obsessive compulsive disorders. I'm more into
insulting people on email lists, telling people stuff they already know,
mouthing off at family gatherings, starting fights in pubs, inciting riots --
that kinda thing. If anyone forwards this to my brother in law I'm in BIG
trouble, as usual.
