First off, I had signed up quite some time ago, and I didn’t receive the list. Please don’t be so dogmatic about such matters, especially when it refers to somebody else’s product. That noted, I do appreciate the 1.03 patch contents, themselves.
Secondly, there are people who aren’t on the list, and it still makes good sense to me let them know about the changes–so they can see just how much work Cliff regularly puts into his games, and has, for some time. Lists of fixes and tweaks fulfill that function, in my opinion. Your mileage may differ.
