Hi Robert,

I replied privately about your situation but it's possible this plan is
more complicated than it needs to be. In general, I'd prefer we receive
t-shirt requests from the same email address as is specified in the
Contact field. Obviously, if they are different, we can always send the
response and t-shirt link to the address in the Contact field, but that
asymmetry seems weird to me, but I'm not against doing this.

For the situations where there is no email address in the contact field,
I'm not certain how else we can confirm we're sending the t-shirt to the
person who deserves it.

Thanks for your input!

- Matt
