Sometimes rant is good. Things started moving at last.
Both Encode and Jcode is now officially registered. And MERCEL finally responded.
This time I fell victim but I know only too well I am the one who victimize my fellows by neglecting them. If that happens to you, plese don't hesitate to yell at me.
After all we are all busy and no one can respond to every single message received. And sometimes thoese messages are not received by network errors, spam filters, and such. As a matter of fact my mail server receives 120-150 thousand SMTP connections, mostly from infected PCs. My mail filters (yes, plural) are pretty good but they are not perfect.
Thank you for your patience and thank you too for your impatience. We definitely need both.
