Personally, I hate filling in forms. But, you know, at the same time, I don't like getting unsolicited emails. I am sure that you are a fine person - but I don't know that yet. That's why if you want to connect you have to do it this way. I do apologise. Think of it as standing at the mote of my castle (modest, slightly decrepit) and having to shout out loudly 'Lower the bloody drawbridge!'
Of course, I will reply promptly. I am not a bastard. Despite what they say.
