I’ve noticed some websites have cut and pasted entire lists of gates at their sites in the past. Although I’m happy the lists are spreading and becoming more widely known, I kindly ask websites not to do this. Please post the first 10 or 12 gates of the list, and then followed by a link to this site. To post more, please send me an e-mail and I’ll do my best to accommodate specials requests. Thanks!
