PLEASE DON'T START THIS *AGAIN*!
Craig requested this over a year ago. Within a matter of *weeks*,
the goal was made. Last spring (april, I think) it started up again. One
netter collected over a half-dozen addresses to send to Craig. Another
took the effort to calculate the cost to the net for all of this.
Craig does not need any more cards. His parents have requested
that this stop. The hospital has requested this stop. The Make-a-wish
foundation has requested this stop. Please do NOT spread this any more,
and tell the people you got it from to do the same.
No more good will is being recieved. Guiness has closed the
get-well-card category to prevent this sort of thing from happening again
in the future. Craig does not get the cards anymore. The hospital was
forced to hire extra people just to open all the mail that they recieved.
By sending more cards all you are doing is costing people money.
Please, folks, let's nip this in the bud before all of net gets
swamped with Craig articles again.
(I think I have the story close enough to show why we shouldn't
start this again, so please don't bother flaming details.)
