My feelings about this is as follows: I don't mind the personal messages,
but I do, like Susie, get annoyed with the reproduction of a long message
with a one word response. I think sharing congratualatory messages is
appropriate here, but perhaps we can make them a bit more significant in
their content. This will benefit both the target of the congratulations and
the rest of the list.
