George, you came across an article that was not on the NANFA web page. It
was just on the computer that houses the NANFA webpage. I didn't think
about the Excite search program finding it. The NANFA page was not linked
to the article, nor did the article contain any link to the NANFA page. It
was by no means a NANFA article, and only said NANFA on it because a month
or 2 ago I added a picture header to every article and apparently pasted it
onto that one in my haste.

The article was entirely tongue-in-cheek. I don't even remember where I
got it originally (maybe on this email list, I don't know) but I kept it
because I know Norm and found it humorous. If there is any psycho out
there who is going to uncover such an article, read it, believe that it's
okay to steal and eat valuable ornamental fish, then subsequently go out
and do these things, we have a lot more to worry from them than fish
stealing <grin>

Thanks for pointing it out. I apologize for placing this where you could
stumble across it. Next time something like this happens, please first
consider there may be a simple and rational explanation. There are only a
small number of unpaid volunteers who are doing all the things necessary to
keep NANFA sailing along, and we do the best we can.

For those who now want to read the article, I moved it to my personal web
server at: . I'd ask Norm to
comment, but he's, fishing...
