How did you get to this URL? When I backtrack on it, I hit some blank spots and I can't find a search engine on the United States Information Agency http://www.usia.gov/ site.
Great info but I'd feel better if there was an obvious path to it.

The mail loop just means that one of the notification e-mail addresses is wrong. Nothing to worry about.

I printed out a copy ofthat transcript. My web browser told me it couldnt find the address as soon as it was done LOADING THE SITE. I waited and after a few minutes of fighting with itself about whether it was going to stay on my screen it simply quit and I printed it. You can learn a LOT reading between the lines of that seminar transcript.
