Hey Richard,
Something seems wrong with your mail sending script. It looks like your
sending the email under my name (John Stultz

While I appreciate you preserving the path author, and the signoffs are
right, you really should send the email under your own name.

The proper style is to keep the mail-header From: the same (ie: Richard
Cochran <richardcochran@xxxxxxxxx>), but as the first line of the mail
body put:
From: Author Name <author@xxxxxxxxxx>
