Is there a way to make the 'Thanks' form more like a regular PM? A few times, I went to hit 'return' to start a new line and it got sent - poof! And the char limit is really low - I have trouble being that concise!

I heard we're going to start putting google ads into the thanks messages, too.

Oohhh! For PMs to be juicy enough to be on WikiLeaks, they must be really salacious. Come on now, BWE! Name your price.

By the way, a few years ago, the CEO of a Dow 30 company was fired, as he was caught exchanging salacious E-mails with a female subordinate employee. The details regarding the discovery of the E-mails were not revealed. Isn't that something? Even CEO's E-mails were not secure.

You would not believe some of the stuff I have seen in emails uncovered during the course of litigation. It's as if people completely forget that they are making a permanent record, not talking privately.

That might be an understatement in itself!

Very funny - but I better keep the comments to myself.
