I also suggest that we refrain from copying our outraged replies --
along with the offending ad -- to the rest of the list.

Sure we're annoyed, but we don't need to shout at each other.

Suggest we develop a strategy to stop the improper use of this service by
persons advertising products or services.
1. We should verify that the advertiser's E-mail is correct.
2. We should bombard the advertiser with E-mail messages.
3. We could also send letters to the appropriate Better Business Bureau.
4. We could try to withdraw their E-mail account.
