Dear Mr. Katz,

I hope you will rule against "Paperless Proxies". Though I am employed as an Account Manager for a Cincinnati, Ohio Independent wholesale Paper Distributor, my reasons for opposing paperless proxies go beyond my employment status.

I don't like, I don't trust, I abhor important communications such as Proxies being sent via e-mail. My home computer is not trustworthy, often locking up due to spam and various other issues - making receipt of e-mail troublesome.

USPS is the proper route, now and in the future.

Thank you.
