Who Did What Blurb
This whole monstruousity was originally conveived February through March 2001 by the members of The Big Note - a Frank Zappa YahooGroup. After an arduous gestation period, this site was birthed on April 11 2001. True to the essence of collaborative effort, these people are held responsible.

A Corporate Memo from EyebrowTweezer Productions
This thread was prompted by an email discussion between YellowMud Shark, and the former webmaster at ZappaDotCom. At the behest of Magic Fingers (whose mail appears immediately below), it is archived for your enjoyment.
It occurred to me that maybe one day we should use this mail (below) as an example to the world of how we communicate whilst "projecting"! Heh heh (btw, I adored this mail when it came through back in January, but there was no way I could reply.......it just wouldn't have done your replies justice).
From January 2, 2005:
The good thing, judging from Keith's response, is that GZ has - as of yet - not discovered either KUR or TBN.
I wouldn't be too sure of that. Maybe Gail doesn't surf the Net looking at FZ fan sites for possible "infringements", but I wouldn't say that she's never heard of us. Then again, I maybe give her too much credit. Still, I bet she has heard of us. All it takes is a Google search and how hard is that?
Regardless, my question is, how seriously should we take this situation? Could we end up being shut down, merely because we offer up bootlegs - for free? One thing's for certain, I'm actually losing money on both sites annually! Not that this matters to me at all, since they are a labour of love, but I mean: if she shuts us down, she might as well go after Charles Ulrich, who is credited on FZ:OZ for providing a bootleg recording of Kaiser Rolls (if my memory serves me right!)...
There is no doubt that Gail can get ugly when crossed. There's also the fact that we are not the only ones out there "paying tribute", so to speak. And I think she probably has a lot of other stuff to worry about more significant than us.
Here's my initial suggestions to Keith:
In this statement lies the rub. If Gail is so "busy" that she can't be bothered to keep up with the folks that pay her, do you think she has the time and resources to keep up with all the folks that don't? I think not...

Feeling a bit empty and longing for more?
Now you're just being enigmatic and a veritable master of ambiguity. Are you feeling empty and longing for more? Am I? Do you think I am? How do you know? Do you have spies? Longing for more what? Is he? Are they? Can we? Questions questions. And question marks.
