Well, like I said, 8 complaints...
140K emails a day, now even if i took those 8 in just one day, thats like
.000005 of a percent, but its worse, because those 8 are for ever, total..
IOW its so few it doesnt even register.

But yes it suprises me because 2 of them were large banking corps, 4 Govt
depts, and the other couple were pvt companies.
