E-mail tip: If you receive an e-mail as part of a blast e-mail with many recipients asking if anyone has seen a set of forms please don't feel compelled to reply if you haven't seen them. Chances are if I don't hear from you I will assume you don't have them. Unless you are being a prick but then if that is the case we have some bigger fish to fry.
