This one comes from the STEMPRA* mailing list.

I’ve removed the sender’s contact details so if you think you need them get in touch and I’ll send them on to you.

*hilarious in-joke referring to the fact that everyone else calls it Stempra. I do too, mostly, but only to fit in with everyone else. I like my acronyms to look like real acronyms – I’m looking at you BPAS and NFP Synergy.
