(My) GSA Message Validator fail

Did you know that there’s a utility in almost all RadBlue tools called the GSA Message Validator? It can be used to see if a snippet of XML is a valid GSA message. I watched a RadBlue developer use it to review a message and asked if I could have it. He kindly responded that I already had it – as if I’d failed to read the tool instructions (I did). To which I quickly replied that I’d go do that now. Don’t get caught – use my blunder for your gain!
