Respectful Request

Woud you strongly consider editing out the contact information for Mr. Zlesak? I can think of no reason why anyone on this forum should contact him. And we've been informed that such information contributes to spam, etc.
I personally would feel awful if a post intended to honor an accomplishment were to be soured in such an unintended way. We have to think about these things these days.
Thank you for considering my suggestion.

O.K. I removed it, but if the link worked, the information would have been available so it is not private information.

This is the link that would not work on my computer:
