> These new rules go into effect in 1999 unless enough people
> scream about it. The FDIC posted an e-mail address to receive
> comments on this, and as it turns out, that address doesn't even
> work! Apparently the FDIC doesn't want to hear *anything*

> Since the FDIC is soliciting public comment on this issue and
