Let me get this right, medical provider: your system can't fit my whole name (party like it's 1995!), the credit card must match that truncated name (Christop? At least most of those brain-dead systems use the cooler Christoph. So continental), I can't pay by phone, and you are going to charge extra for me to send a check (which I will have to go to the bank to get because I haven't written a check in 3-4 years)?

Yep, says the chatbot, that is correct.

There is something so freeing about my new and because A) I am assiduously avoiding looking at any stats from the start (when my prior lists got large---by my standards, there were less than 2000 for the largest---I got seduced by stats), and B) the platform I am using (ButtonDown) is run by a fantastic developer, so I can avoid getting bogged down in rolling my own system. Oh, and C) the lists have open RSS feeds as well.
