Anonymous feedback

I'd appreciate feedback very much, both positive and negative. Since some people might be concerned about giving negative feedback, I have created a gmail account for that purpose. The username is oriSPAMgurelSPAMfeedback without the SPAM and the password is mathSPAM253SPAMfeedback without the SPAM. Feel free to use it, but remember that if you don't want other people using this account to see your feedback, you have to delete it from the sent items folder.
