Ok, with all due respect, "in spite of the name, those passes will get
you..." is a *LOT* different from "it worked for me last year."  I suggest
that if, in the future, you want to make an announcement on a list for
which you seem to have some official capacity, that you speak more
carefully and make sure you've done your homework before you make
overreaching statements.  That way, you won't mislead anyone. Thank you
for your time.

There was a time
A wind that blew so young
For this could be the biggest sky
And I could have the faintest idea
