I sent out an alternate LRSA a few weeks ago to address and thus far 
have heard nothing.  I also don't have a real problem with the $100.00 ( 
OK I do but only because I'm cheap. :-) )  I keep hearing that they just 
want to update our records but the LRSA goes much further than that.

John Paul Morrison is a separate email offers reasons about why we 
should never have to pay and they make some sense but I'm still willing 
to cough up the $100.00 or something like it to keep things up to date 
and happy.
