No, it wasn't clear.  When you said "It's not a vague hint", it wasn't clear
if you meant "It's a clear instruction" or "It's not a hint at all".  I
certainly was sending email to a publically archived mailing list and
included a raw email address, which is what the quoted text refers to.

In any case, thanks for the clarification.
