Re: "chalk full" for "chock full"

We’ve been spammed….

(Or, more charitably, perhaps there is a reference to “chalk full” in that Web site? Ha.)

You can delete it. I don’t want Craig or the others to think I’m calling them spammers! :-) Thanks.

Re: "chalk full" for "chock full"

No problem, I saw the spam. My “first ever post” was not a defense thinking I was accused of spam or anything, though I can see how it might be perceived as that.

Ugh. This is getting messy.
